Z Wine ‘Rustica’ Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 27-Dec-2017
Full, dark ruby-red with black hues and a little garnet on the rim. The nose is full, firm and densely packed with blackcurrants entwined with mint and eucalypt aromas along with earthy nuances. Full-bodied, the palate has deep and densely concentrated, up-front flavours of blackcurrant, mint and eucalypt. The fruit is rich and solidly presented. Savoury dark herb notes emerge with nuances of earth. The palate has plenty of fine, grainy tannins, extract and structure with a fine thread of enlivening acidity, and the wine carries with good power to a fulsome, soft and lingering finish. This is a fulsome, softly packed Cabernet Sauvignon with dense blackcurrant fruit along with mint, herb and eucalypt notes on a grainy textured palate with underlying power. Match with roast lamb and slow-cooked red meat dishes over the next 7-8+ years. Fruit fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 20 months in 5% new oak. 17.5/20 Nov 2017 RRP AUS$25.00
