Saltram Mamre Brook Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

A wine which is polished and ready to drink now but will also reward cellaring.

Aromas of chocolate, dense plum and char. Oak is there but not overwhelming.

Having just been released, a few years aging already behind this wine has served it well. Soft and smooth. Fruit is king and the dense flavours roll along neatly. The chocolate and plum reappear on the palate but a squirt of blueberry flavours added to the complexity. Soft acid present, and looking at the whole picture, all elements humming along together wonderfully.

Fine tannins and an ever lasting finish. A big tick!
