Wine Of The Week
Lake Breeze Cabernet Sauvignon, Langhorne Creek 2013 $25
With its deep, dense purple-red colour and superb blueberry, blackcurrant and violet-scented bouquet, this is a refined, elegant cabernet at a bargain price. It’s quite stylish, with abundant fine-grained tannins that run the length of the palate. It shows unbounded potential. Cellar it!
