- Matthew Jukes Best 100 - Matthew Jukes Best 100 2013
Elegant blueberry, mulberry, minerally fruit of great intensity and length. Finesse and remarkable freshness. Medium-bodied, proving that a great wine doesn‘t have to be in-your-face.
Deep garnet-purple coloured, it offers an intense perfume of crushed blackcurrants, blackberry preserves and mulberries with underlying clove, cedar, yeast extract, black olive and damp loam hints. The modest light to medium-bodied palate really packs the flavour into an elegant package with layer upon layer of youthful blackberry and spice flavours supported by a firm level of finely grained tannins and crisp acidity, finishing long.
Firm in texture, boasting chewy tannins that clamp onto a gorgeous thread of currant, boysenberry, tobacco and black pepper flavours, which manage to float free on the long, expressive finish.
Best of Cabernet & Family
Medium-bodied and perfectly balanced, its array of blackcurrant, redcurrant, earth and spice fruit flavours are clearly varietal. Effortless grace.
The plum, mulberry and blackcurrent aromas cascade out of the glass. Savoury ironstone and tobacco complete the classic flavour profile.
Elegance meets the strictest definition. Utterly enticing, profoundly pure, effortlessly seamless and earth-shakingly long-lived. Margaret River graphite, high cocoa dark chocolate texture and gravelly tannins support pin-point exact violet and blackcurrant fruits. Its such seamless coherence, you’d never know it was a blend. Diana would be proud.
