100% Cabernet Sauvignon

"Mint, chocolate and cassis play easily on the nose of the 2016 Terra Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon. A blend of several vineyards, including a bit from Eden Valley, it's medium to full-bodied yet shows the variety's hallmark restraint and fine tannins on the finish.

Between visits to the winery and the American importer, I may have tasted half of this large winery's offerings. There are several tiers of wines being produced, including some brands from outside the Barossa (which will be included in a subsequent report). Overall, the wines are solid, with quality generally increasing alongside price." (WA)

Winery Notes:
The range is named is named in honor of the rich soils in the region which are a major factor in the Barossa’s reputation as one of the great wine regions of the world.

The wine shows a bright red with a purple hue on release. Lifted blackcurrant balances the fresh herb characters on the nose. A hint of eucalyptus is evident. The palate has bright currant characters throughout. Spice and chocolate add to the complexity of the wine. The tannins are ripe and grainy and give the wine good structure.
