FOUR Gold and 95pts for this "brightly fruited" (Halliday) Cabernet from Zonte's Footstep
“Squeaky clean, brightly fruited, moreish, all manner of positives. Not to mention value. It tastes of boysenberries, violets, fragrant/blossomy herbs and kirsch, and if you can stop at one glass then you’re better than I am – 95pts” (Halliday).
Lavish Cabernet with SIX Gold - plus 93, 94 & 95 points!
"Hand-picked, crushed, open-fermented, 14 days on skins, 18 months in French oak (mainly used). This is a deadly serious cabernet in traditional pre-Parker style, drawing saliva from the mouth with its blackcurrant and dried bay leaf flavours coupled with very firm (but not dry) tannins. Most definitely demands respect." James Halliday.
Inky Barossa Cabernet, offering great ‘bang for your buck’!
The Barossa is most most famous for its big, rich, broad-shouldered Shiraz, but its inky, lipstaining Cabernet is also revered by connoisseurs. It offers the same luscious intensity and richness, but with a distinctive varietal character.
Powerful Coonawarra Cabernet from a ‘distinguished’ estate
Winemaker Paul Gordon is making good use of the beautifully sited mature vines at this “distinguished estate with a proud history. Long renowned for its Cabernet” (Halliday) – and this powerfully intense example proves it!
