Description

Planted in Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale during the 1940s the Sandown Cabernet Sauvignon site is populated by a rare pre-phylloxera Chateau Reynella Cabernet Sauvignon clone that expresses the ancient Blewitt Springs terroir with opulence and majesty. Low-yielding, west-facing old vines produce a powerful yet refined and elegantly composed, classic Cabernet Sauvignon with notes of black currant, graphite, slate, earl grey tea, sage, and bay leaf mixed with cedar shaving and baking spice with a roast meat undertone that gives the wine power and presence.

Review

This has real depth and concentration, as well as purity of cassis and dark-cherry fruit with an overlay of roasting herbs and bay leaf. Distinctive cabernet. The palate has distinctive freshness and sanguine, powerful tannins that carry some cocoa powder-like tones. Fine and dry finish with bright, fresh acidity. Black-fruit finish. Drink over the next decade.
