2019 Winemakers Selection Cabernet Sauvignon
Elegant notes of plums, blueberries, rhubarb and leafy notes. The palate is fruit driven, yet shows some earthy spice and lengthy tannins on the finish.
Suggested Food Match
Braised and roasted meats (beef and lamb) with vegetables, and aromatic herbs.

Reviews of this wine:
Ken Gargett (January 2022)
Shaw Wines have an impressive record with their Cabernets and one sip of this wine will confirm why. The fruit for their 2019 was harvested at night, in temperatures below 20°C, to preserve freshness and fruit flavours. Open top fermenters are used with subsequent maturation in ‘predominantly’ French oak barrels.
This really did impress. Deep purple in colour, the nose is a delight – bright, vibrant flavours with notes of violets, florals, mulberries, blueberries, coffee beans and more. The oak is very well integrated. Well structured, the wine is elegant with good length, and yet maintains the intensity throughout. Slightly furry tannins at the finish tie it all together along with good acidity. Lovely now but it has at least a decade to shine.
