What is this latest find like in the glass? The blackberries and dark chocolate on the nose and palate call to mind that dessert you really shouldn’t but do anyway. But there’s more to this than pure indulgence although there plenty of that. Floral aromas upfront and fine tannins to finish lift the wine and keep it grounded in turn. The sweep of cool-climate class runs top to toe pitching this Great Southern Cabernet somewhere between elegance and eager moreishness.
The previous vintage was described by one critic as an ‘outrageous bargain’ at the standard price. This Confidential offer is approaching the absurd.
