For The Cellar

Crawford River Cabernet Sauvignon, Henty 2006 $50

This is a very elegant, stylish and complex cabernet which wears its homage to Bordeaux on its sleeve. Cedar, leather, rose-petal and earthy aromas of considerable complexity. Firm and tightly structured in the mouth, with ample tannins and lovely savoury flavours of depth and intrigue, the texture superbly fleshy. Now to 2026. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 95/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: rare roast beef

Stockist: Annandale & Cremorne Cellars; Fiveway Cellars
