Taltarni Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Made from fruit sourced from the original 1960’s plantings, this label was previously “Old Block.”

Taltarni, Old Vine, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pyrenees, 2017

Showing leaner vintage derive elements the oak appears as malted vanilla with varietal cassis with a red fruit edge. Pastry, light spearmint and fresh earth give a savoury coda. Elegance with restraint, the tannins are subtle, lacy and just beginning their integration journey. A handsome and ready wine.

RRP: $50
Alc: 13.5%
