Grant Burge Nebu 2018

Cabernet dominant nose: Blackberry paste, bramble, black olive, light cigar box, creosote and choc mint with support from the Shiraz offering spice and meat, ferrous influences. Powerful, dark and long. Structured with drying, firm focused coating tannins that never waver from their intent. Plenty of spice and finishes fresh.

Rating: 18.5/20 (94/100)
