2015 Knappstein Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Clare Valley is famous for its big, robust Cabernet Sauvignons and this is no exception with its deep colour, plump mulberry and blackcurrant fruits in a full-bodied package. With some firm tannins it is a wine built for steak, and a big one at that!

Winemaker's Notes

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wine aromatically displays sweet red berries and darker fruits supported by classic leafy notes and a savoury meat-like element. The palate is led by pure, dark blackberry flavours with red fruits playing a highlighting role.

2015 Knappstein Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

The Wine Front (2012 Vintage) says
Winemaker Glenn Barry is getting the Knappstein house back in order. Shop around - you'll readily find this tucked neatly under the $20 mark. Black fruits, chocolate, nougat and mint. Medium bodied, savoury tobacco and black olive, has richness and dark fruit combined with grippy tannin and a long dry finish. Very firm dense savoury wine. Needs time. Serious wine and serious value. Gary Walsh.
