I’ve a soft spot for the Cabernet that comes from the De Borts’ Estate Vineyard in Dixons Creek. The wines are usually such a soft, classic expression and completely enjoyable.
De Bortoli, The Estate Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon, Yarra Valley, 2019
Unadulterated Mod Oz Cabernet frame and mode: Blackberry and easy blackcurrant: Light 2B Pencil outer, attractive cedar and chocolatey oak. Higher tones of mint over earthy peat. Firm elegant tannins proving a base for the mid-weight supple dark fruit. Good persistence of flavour through a calm finish.
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
