This well balanced expression of McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon is an ode to the ‘luncheon claret', but it's not as green and austere as the favorite lunchtime libation at the gentleman's club. The fruit is from a vineyard with good breeding in the Willunga foothills and the resulting wine has been made in a fruit driven style this vintage. It has classic First Drop drinkability, so bottoms up!
Dark plum color.
Cassis and plum fruit flavors with hints of nettle, tobacco leaf and tea
