Fraser Gallop 'Parterre' Cabernet Sauvignon
"A traditional Bordeaux blend comprising cabernet, merlot, petit verdot, cabernet franc and malbec. Winemaking techniques emphasise the complexity attainable in a single vineyard wine delivering a taut, angular cabernet-dominant powerhouse that remains composed, svelte and elegant. Medium-bodied with a pleasing density of fruit, fine grained graphite-like tannins and cool acidity; a decent lick of vanilla custard French oak completes the balance and shape."
"Deep, dark red wine with ruby red hues. On the nose you’ll find praline and cooked-apple with citrus and lemon-grass undertones; bay leaf, sage and mint leaves; a fetching floral perfume, and baking spice and vanilla custard oak. Taste it and a formidable, lively mid-palate kicks in with a pleasing density of succulent blackberry, boysenberry and mulberry fruits, gravel, chocolate and nori. Fine grained graphite delivers a long pencilly finish."
