2017 Parterre Cabernet
This Fraser Gallop Estate wine is a beautiful dark Cabernet Sauvignon with crimson hues. Blackberry and char-grilled meats with smoky toasty oak aromas, quite similar to many Bordeaux Cabernets in profile. It is a medium-bodied wine with a succulent fleshy mid-palate with flavours of blackberry and red currants with hints of Nori seaweed and bay leaf and lapsang tea. Layers of flavours wash over the mouth but also words like elegance and finesse and complexity are evoked when tasting this wine. The tannins are soft and supple.
95-96 Outstanding. Wines of gold medal standard
