Naked Lady Cabernet Sauvignon 2015


The label caught my attention immediately - only to find out that Naked Lady Wines is actually named after a South African bulb flower which is prominent throughout the vineyard. Awarded the Best Cabernet Sauvignon at the Mudgee Wine Show 2017.

Quite a surprise packet really. You wouldn't suspect a wine of this quality by shopping with the eye -the simple labeling certainly doesn't help the sell I must admit.

Dark fruit and berries swarm the mouth. Scents of tobacco and cigar box and a smokiness comes with it. The fruit has good drive and presence filling the mouth effortlessly. A Christmas cake spice hangs on to a long and satisfying finish. A great wine and a great find.

This will age beyond a decade with ease.

93/100
