Wine of the Week AU

Tim Adams Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2012, Clare Valley, AUD $45

Snap up this opportunity of purchasing a six-year-old reserve wine carefully cellared at the winery. It’s a highly satisfying drop that looks in top form from the very first pour. Cabernet sauvignon and malbec are co-fermented to create a wine with generous weight, poised fleshy fruit and dark chocolate, along with hints of spice and bell pepper. Rich, supple and flavoursome.
