Aravina Estate Cabernet Merlot, Margaret River 2011 $28

This winery, the re-born Amberley Estate, is a discovery for me, its wines scoring consistently well. The aromas of raspberry/red fruits, mint and briar have a touch of regional seaweed or iodine. The intense, lively palate has good focus and concentration. Medium-full bodied, it’s elegant, tightly packed and long. Now to 2023. 14.7 per cent alcohol. 91/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)
