Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
The highly regarded flagship wine from Gralyn Estate, rich, full-bodied and elegant. Vintaged from unirrigated, organically grown Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted in 1975. Dense, dark crimson in colour, perfumed with blackcurrant, violets, cedar and spice. The palate is well balanced, intense and powerful, with a core of sweet fruit and finely textured tannins supporting a long persistent finish.
"This wine has started to open up, especially on the nose, with an extra year in bottle from when last tasted. The impressive thing here is how well those tannins have been managed and harnessed to produce a wine that is elegant and so refined. Highly concentrated palate structure with firm, sinewy tannins and a decent hit of oak in support. It is a wine with tremendous cellaring potential."
