2016 Wicks Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemaker: Leigh Ratzmer
Cassis and dark fruit flavours combine with subtle hints of tobacco and chocolate. After 12 months in French oak, silky tannins balance finely with fruit flavours and subtle oak nuances.
How do you describe the style of this
wine? I aim for our cabernet to express a pure varietal aromatic profile while maintaining a refined and balanced tannin framework. A thread of cool climate spice tends to tie the fruit, tannin and oak together seamlessly. What do you love to eat with this cabernet? Braised beef short rib, pickled daikon, button mushroom espuma, enoki and burnt onion jam. Or slow-cooked whole Berkshire pig with roasted smashed potatoes and salad leaves.
