Wine Of The Week
Joseph 2012 Moda Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, McLaren Vale, $82.99
Dense but certainly not heavy red with dark berry, plum, dark chocolate and spice flavours. Made by drying the grapes (as in Amarone) before crushing and fermenting them to aid concentration. The wine certainly delivers on the statement that “concentration and finesse can co-exist”. Remarkable wine in a very appealing style and with excellent cellaring potential.
