After tasting this delicious Margaret River Cabernet Merlot we can understand why it won all that bling too - it's a blinder.
Crafted by Frank Tate, who was one of the original family members who put Evans & Tate on the map, this full-flavoured Cabernet blend shows juicy blackberry Cabernet characters, with ripe Merlot fleshiness, alongside a little Margaret River mint and some fine tannins.
What really hooks you in here - and what no doubt helped convince the judges to give this eight gold medals is that perfect balance, with a structure that suggests this will look great now and great in eight years time.
Appearance: Deep plum red with purple hues.
Nose: Lifted aromas of blackcurrant, mulberry, minty cassis and spice. Cedary oak with a hint of sweet vanilla.
Palate: Fruits of the forest flavours, vanillan oak, fine smooth tannins with a warming soft and silky mouthfeel, with a lingering finish.
Food: Medium rare Scotch Fillet, on a bed of mash with spring fresh asparagus spears.
Grape Variety: Cabernet 92%, Merlot 8%.
