The Partners Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
Dark fruits, anise, and violets.
Rich with forest fruits, savoury spice and toasty oak flavours framed by firm tannins giving the wine power and length.
Slow cooked lamb shoulder with zucchini and feta salad.
A mild 2020 spring with reasonable rainfall provided excellent growing conditions. A wet November followed by a warm and dry December and January set the vines for up for a regular season. However, wet and humid conditions in February created an unusual vintage with extreme weather conditions. As a result, the 2021 vintage required extra work and attention to detail in the vineyard. This block from Frankland River developed great fruit intensity and concentration hence the style is bold and powerful.
