Lakeside Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Story: They say that a parent doesn’t have a favourite child, but Cabernet Sauvignon has always secretly been one of ours!
Vintage: The 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.
Nose: The nose displays beautifully complex notes of plums, blackberries and a hint of cassis.
Palate: The palate is smooth and well-rounded with plenty of blackberries and plums, complemented by well-integrated tannins.
Food Pairings: This is the perfect wine for a lamb on the spit or any other meaty main course!
Cellaring: Drink now to 2027. (VF)
