For The Cellar

Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River 2011 $90

This grand cabernet oozes class. The bouquet displays raspberry, cassis and violets while in the mouth it’s intense, focused, tight and refined, with stylish powdery tannins that run the length of the palate. It finishes long and harmonious. A powerful, long-living and very regional style. Best 2016 to 2046. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 95/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: Pyengana cheddar

Stockists: Shorty’s Liquor; Camperdown Cellars Darlinghurst
