Thorn-Clarke ‘Sandpiper’ Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 21-Oct-2018
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is elegantly concentrated and tightly bound with pure aromas of blackcurrant fruit with subtle notes of blackberries and cassis entwined with fresh and dark herbs, showing mint, unfolding a little menthol. This has clarity and definition. Full-bodied, the palate is elegant in proportion, but has depth, intensity and penetration of blackcurrant fruit with notes of fresh and dark herbs, mint and cassis. The fruit is underlined by moderate tannin extraction lending good structure and supple grip with integrated acidity, and the wine carries to a light, lingering finish of blackcurrants. This is an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon with blackcurrant, dark herb, mint and cassis flavours on a supple, fine-textured palate. Match with roasted lamb over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from ‘St Kitts’, ‘Milton Park’ and ‘Kabininge’, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 10-12 months in seasoned French oak. 17.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP AU$20.00
