Wine of the Week AU

Fraser Gallop Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Margaret River, AUD $45

The best cabernet yet from this consistent winery, it has a few percent of petit verdot, merlot, malbec and franc thrown in. Clean, fresh, primary aromas of violet, rose petal, crushed-leaf and berry are captivating. It’s medium bodied but concentrated, intense and charming with measured tannins. (Screwcap)
