Hastwell & Lightfoot Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Updated packaging for this release from McLaren Vale stalwarts Hastwell & Lightfoot. The cuvée seasoned with a touch of Cabernet Franc.

Hastwell & Lightfoot, Cabernet Sauvignon, McLaren Vale, 2017

Deep garnet-purple from heart to rim. Dusty, yet concentrate nose with cassis, violets, fresh bay leaves, creamy blackberry fool, chunks of broken dark chocolate and an echo of mint. The dustiness persists in the plentiful tannins through the tightly wound and medium-full palate. Lingering dark choc/mocha and a glimpse of McLaren Vale minerality/savouriness. Give a good roll around in a decanter or else time should be kind.

RRP: $25
Alc: 14%
Rating: 17/20
