Winemaker's Notes

Color: Dense dark red. Nose: Instantly Penfolds – emboldened by its formic disposition and complexity. Mint/dry herb (rosemary/sage) varietal reminiscences. Wafts of Chorizo (red) sausage; tomato and red capsicum pizza base/bruschetta. Integrated, perfumed oak (polished teak, brown boot-polish).

Palate: Varietally IDd and expressive – green olive and a market-garden foray – broccoli/spinach/broad beans/broad-leaf legumes. Fresh acidity coupled with ‘non-shy’ tannins induce structural linearity/definition/liveliness. A firm finish. A persistent ‘afterglow’. Oak well-hidden, awoken with a swirl.

Regional Style

Australian Cabernet Sauvignon

Australian Cabernet Sauvignons tend to be Full-bodied and have High Acidity

The home of Cabernet Sauvignon is in Bordeaux. However, Australia has found great success growing it, especially in the regions of Coonawarra and Margaret River.

These Cabs balance the dark, rich fruit that Cab is known for with flavors of mint and eucalyptus.
