Aged blend

Geoff Merrill Fleurieu Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2012, Langhorne Creek, AUD $24

A beautifully, fragrant wine with elegant fruit as well as harmony between the varietal components. It is a mix of bright red berries balanced by gentle savouriness. It has benefitted from its six years of bottle age but retains freshness and vibrancy. Decant a few hours before serving. Drinking well now and a steal at this price. (Screwcap)
