There’s more than a few canine analogies with this quirky brand from Langhorne Creek, that’s because it represents John Glaetzer “the Old Dog’ and Ben Potts ‘the young pup” who represent two of Langhorne Creek’s oldest winemaking families. The Terrier is a blend of Cabernet Shiraz with the winemaking logic of taking one good thing, adding it to another and making it better! Plum, dark fruits and spice on the nose and palate before ensure a full- flavoured wine with soft tannin weight.
Deep red/plum in colour with crimson hues. Aromas of lifted spice, gentle black pepper and hints of leather and mint are entwined with plum and dark red fruits.
Juicy, sweet dark berry/blackcurrant fruit flavours lead to plush, soft tannins ensuring considerable length and richness.
Full bodied yet mellow, this is a wine to be enjoyed over the next 5 - 8 years.
