For The Cellar

Swings & Roundabouts Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, Margaret River 2012 $22

This bright, youthful cabernet punches well above its weight, but even three years cellaring will make a world of difference. Deep red-purple colour; vanilla, chocolate and subtle olive aromas, the palate deep in sweet-fruit raspberry and blackberry flavours; a hint of violets. Good structure and persistence. Top value. Best 2016 to 2025. 14 per cent alcohol. 92/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: pink roast leg of lamb

Stockist: Victoria Park Cellars, Zetland
