Dark dense purple red.
Intense blackcurrent,cedar and mint. Subtle use of oak.
Typical youthful Cabernet palate with powerful grippy tannins and intense fruit.
At this stage it would benefit from an hour (or more) in a decanter.
Should age very well as Kangarilla Hill Wines typically do.
The 2017 Kangarilla Hill vintage has delivered a particularly elegant fruit intensity.
(Tasted May 2019)
Kangarilla Hill Classic Reds benefit from being opened for some time prior to drinking. This gives the wine time to ‘breathe’ and ‘open up’. However in today’s busy world the reality is that most people just open, pour and drink!
Here are two time saving ways to enhance your enjoyment of the wines –
- Decant the bottle and serve from the decanter
- Use an aerator
Our Wine Experts said the wines they tasted for us in May 2019 were also assessed for ‘Cellar-Ability’ and we are pleased to say they all passed with flying colours so we encourage you to buy some to drink now and some to put down for future enjoyment.
