Burge Family Winemakers The Homestead Cabernet Sauvignon, Barossa Valley 2012 $30 – $35

Not every year is great for cabernet in the Barossa, but 2012 was. Superbly deep, bright colour; clean, bright berry-fruit aromas and flavours in abundance, with a fruit-sweet mid-palate and ample soft tannins. Very cabernet. A smartly polished wine. Now to 2032. 14.8 per cent alcohol. 92/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: aged Reggiano

Stockist: Vintage Blue
