2008 Sheer Drop Wines Cabernet Sauvignon
2012 Balgownie Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
- Bendigo is normally all about Shiraz. Shiraz Shiraz Shiraz. Everywhere Shiraz. Yet the rich red dirt of Bendigo's vineyards is also a pretty handy place to make full bodied Cabernet as this chunky red attests too. It's hardly a beast but it does have plenty of dark chocolate flavours. 80
- This rich cool climate Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits true varietal characters and distinctive aromas of mulberry and vanillin new oak. The palate shows generous fruit and a concentrated finish.
James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says:“
Very savoury, briary edges to light- to medium-bodied cabernet fruit, which retains just enough blackcurrant to sustain the finish.Australian Wine Companion 2008 2007
