Carillon Block 22 Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


A fabulous Cabernet from South Australia's Wrattonbully region. Just a stone's throw from Coonawarra and sitting on Limestone soils, you'd be forgiven for confusing the two given the similarities shown.

The Davis Family have some great Wrattonbully Cabernet parcels which go to this label and to Peppertree. 

Buckets of black fruits with a gentle savoury drive get you in the mood. Chocolate and leather, cassis and generous plummy fruits reach out for your attention early. It continues to evolve wonderfully over a couple of days with dried herbs, tomato leaf, a subtle touch of mint and well-handled tannins which point to an age-worthy wine. Good acidity knocks this into shape as scents of cedar continue to diffuse and fine spices bring this classy Cabernet to a close. Impressive.

Drink to ten years+
