For The Cellar

Majella Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawarra 2011 $33

This is a major success from a troubled vintage, and maintains this vineyard’s highly distinctive style. Deep purple-red, it’s bright and youthful with peppermint, crushed-leaf and cassis aromas. It’s medium-bodied and crisp, with cool-grown but not unripe varietal cues, and bright, lively intensity of flavour. Now to 2030. 14 per cent alcohol. 93/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: beef tagliata
