Top Aussie red
Bendooley Vineyard Shiraz Cabernet, Southern Highlands 2012 $28
From the Berkelouw book family’s Berrima vineyard, this is a remarkably attractive young red, without the usual Highlands cabernet greenness but with spice, cherry and dark-berry flavours, with leafy cabernet high-notes. Succulent and delicious, it already drinks well.
Now to 2020. 13.8 per cent alcohol. 91/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)
