Grower Gatherer by Earthworks Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Barossa Cabernet. Divisive, but can be excellent when be done well. Part of the Hill Smith Family Vineyards (home of Yalumba). Made by Marc Van Halderen.  Vegan friendly if that’s your thing.

Grower Gatherer by Earthworks, Cabernet Sauvignon, Barossa, 2020


Blueberry and cassis to pastille with crushed dried herbs: kitchen leading to tobacco. Dried tomato leaf over mocha and cedar rich oak with a wink of eucalypt. Palate is fruit sweet and jolly good. The pastille black fruits wrapped by seductive oak. Hyper fine tannin written as a bit part to tick the boxes without dominating.

RRP: $25
Alc: 14%
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
