Xanadu ‘Exmoor’ Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia - Western Australia
Review Date : 29-Oct-2018
Even, dark ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegant in proportion with finely concentrated and softly packed aromas of ripe blackcurrants with some mint herb and cassis notes. This has good intensity and varietal expression. Medium-bodied, the palate has a rich and well-packed core with solid flavours of ripe blackcurrants along with nuances of mint and cassis, unfolding a little eucalyptus. The fruit is rich and lively, and underlined by fine-grained tannin structure and grip, and the mouthfeel has fresh acidity lending good energy. The wine carries to a lingering finish. This is a bright, vibrant, rich-fruited Cabernet Sauvignon with soft blackcurrant and cassis fruit with fine tannin structure. Serve with roast lamb over the next 4-5 years. A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec, the fruit 70% from the ‘Boodjudup’ vineyard and the remainder other sites, all Margaret River, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 14 months in 20% new French oak barriques. 17.5+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $28.00
