2011 Awakening Cabernet Sauvignon

$89.95

Specially selected parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon have been blended to produce this wine for the Awakening range. The wine displays complex aromas of blackcurrant, liquorice and choc mint, with hints of mocha.

On the palate, the dense velvety texture is complemented by cigar box, black olive notes followed by fine silky tannins from 18 months maturation in French oak barriques.

Reviews

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015

Rating: 96 Points
There is no question this is high quality Cabernet, and that the handling of French Oak has been sensitive; vibrant casis, redcurrant and superfine tannins are cradled in perfectly integrated French oak. Is one of those wines that can be enjoyed young or old. Screwcap. 14.5% To 2046
