Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

$130.00

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. 

Accolades
"Deep, dark red/purple colour. Cassis and subtle bacon-fat aromas, the palate full-bodied and firmly tannic, with chew and grip but the tannins are supple and ripe. Good concentration. A big, muscular wine, seemingly built for the long-term."
95 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review 2022

"Medium deep crimson. Intense cassis, dark chocolate aromas with underlying cedar notes. Generous and inky deep with lovely blackcurrant, praline, espresso flavours, fine grainy, slightly grippy tannins and well-integrated cedar, roasted chestnuts. Finishes grainy/ chewy firm with appealing leafy notes. Well balanced and evolved with very good density and freshness. From 1975 plantings. Will have wide appeal among cabernet-lovers."
