Wine of the Week AU

Pepper Tree Block 21A Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Wrattonbully, AUD $65

Made from winemaker Gwyn Olsen’s favourite block of vines. A very fragrant cabernet, fruit driving the bouquet, while the palate is powerful, concentrated and generously endowed with tannin. It’s firm, impactful, well-structured and long. A very smart single-block cabernet. (Screwcap)
