Bold Balnaves

Balnaves Entav Clone Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot 2016, Coonawarra, AUD $28

Made from a newly isolated French cabernet clone, this is a deep coloured, ripe and blackberry-ish, bold-fruited cabernet blend with a medium to full body and ripe tannins. It’s quite different to most Balnaves cabernets. It’s low on oak and grip, designed to drink young. (Screwcap)
