Wendouree Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

94+ POINTS - WINE FRONT!  

 

Supple, succulent red of shapely, firm ribbons of tannin, powdery finish, loaded with jolly-jellied plum and blackberries, green herb, pepper, mint and coarse minerally feel. Cassis and dried flowers in perfume too. Bright flavours, tensile and taut, a bit raw and rugged in a way too, though that should be sorted out with time. Just a little mean at present, though some might like that, acidity coarse and zingy to close. Time, sure. But its parts aren’t quite at pace to other years too. " Mike Bennie, Wine Front

 

"Blackcurrant, port jelly, gum leaf and cedar. Tense and highly strung, grip of chalky and ironstone tannin, quiet succulence of fruit, nice and dark and serious, but also slightly jubey with it. Finish is very long, tight in tannin, and almost tangy fresh. A bit herbal, but hey!, it’s Clare Valley Cabernet, and I don’t mind that at all. Again, a ‘days of yore’ feel to this release. Wait for it." - Gary Walsh, Wine Front
