I Am George Limestone Coast Cabernet/Merlot 2016

Blended Red from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 11-Mar-2018
Veery dark, deep, impenetrable black-hued purple-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is soft and restrained in expression with an elegantly concentrated core of ripe blackcurrant and blackberry fruit along with cassis and subtle notes of mint herb, unfolding a little eucalyptus and oak spice. Full-bodied, the palate is well-proportioned with deep and elegantly concentrated flavours of blackcurrants, cassis, liquorice and eucalyptus, unveiling herbs and cedary oak. The fruit forms a firm line with grainy tannin extraction and grip, with balanced acidity. The wine is carried by the structure to a dry, textured, lingering finish. This is a firm and grainy Cabernet/Merlot blend with ripe blackcurrant fruit along with cassis, liquorice and eucalypt notes. Serve with roasted lamb and semi-hard cheeses over the next 7-8 years. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the Limestone Coast, fermented to 14.3% alc., the wine aged 21 months in new and seasoned French and American oak hogsheads. 18.0/20 Mar 2018 RRP $22.99
