2018 Howard Park Scotsdale Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet from the Great Southern is a rare jewel and this wine is a sublime expression. In line with the Distinguished Sites concept, selected fruit from our Abercrombie vineyard, located in the Mount Barker subregion of Great Southern, is crafted to highlight the distinctive varietal and regional qualities of our best sites.
Aromas of cassis, blueberry, mulberry and a touch of earthiness. The palate is luscious and generous with brooding dark fruit flavours of mulberry, blueberry, black currant, plus black truffle, dusty mocha and gravel soil notes. 18 months maturation in French oak (40% new) supports the weight of this beautiful dark juice from our Scotsdale vineyard, adding flavour and rounding the edges, leaving fine tannin and a persistent, comforting finish.
Enjoy alongside fried tofu with spicy ginger-sesame sauce.
Drink now or cellar for 7 to 10 years.
