Reviews

2016 Winemakers Selection Cabernet Sauvignon – Huon Hooke (January 2020)

Deep red/purple colour. The bouquet showcases classy cassis fruit and a hint of cedar; the palate is full-bodied and intense, with elegance as well as concentration of flavour backed by abundant tannins, which are smooth and fine-grained. An excellent cabernet, with long persistence. This is a smart wine, a great value buy and a terrific cellaring proposition. Cellar to 2034. 92/100 points.
