Balgownie White Label Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2006 Vintage) says
Balgownie's Cabernet Sauvignon continues its excellent recent form - we reckon it's one of the great buys of Australian red wine. It's not a massively intense wine but, then, that's not its shtick. It's curranty and savoury and grippy, its minty aftertaste the main clue to its region. This will mature in beautiful fashion. Chocolatey, pencilly oak has been taken up perfectly by the fruit flavours. Really, it's just lovely -especially if you keep it for a few years. Pair it with good, old-fashioned roast lamb.

You'd almost class Balgownie as one of the old stagers of Aussie red wine now - it was one of the wineries to kick-start the modern era of Victorian wine back in 1969. In recent years winemaker Tobias Ansted has got the cabernet singing. 2005 RELEASE Just a crackingly good wine. Medium-weight but finely tuned, with cassis-like fruit flavour hanging along a spine of dry, ripe, classical tannins. The odd smidge of mint and earth flavour, but the hallmarks of this wine are balance and structure. My kind of wine, DRINK 2011-2025.
