Indulge Yourself

Two Hands Aphrodite Cabernet Sauvignon, Barossa Valley 2010 $165

This is a decadent, superripe, opulent style which is more about fleshy succulence than varietal character. It’s not without minor blemishes, but is a wine of character. Oak-pumped and flirting with jamminess, it’s very fruit-sweet in the mouth and soft, without the firm tannin backbone common in cabernet. Full-on hedonistic. Now to 2025. 14.9 per cent alcohol. 94/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: Reggiano cheese
