Wine of the Week AU

Lake Breeze Arthur’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot Malbec 2013, Langhorne Creek, AUD $42

Beautiful deep colour. A complex and inviting nose. Fragrant berries, a hint of leather, a little mocha, ripe plums and a touch of dried herb. The palate is richly-flavoured and intense, though not heavy. Concentrated yet lively with perfectly balanced acidity. Oak plays a supporting role. A stylish blend, with the components in perfect balance. Excellent flavour progression, length and balance. Very well-made. Highly recommended. (Screwcap)
