Glaetzer Potts The Stray Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

John Glaetzer. Ben Potts. Two famed winemakers, with a whole shedload of wine show silverware between 'em (including four Jimmy Watson trophies), now together in one wine supergroup.

Not bad eh? They could have come up with something more fun than just 'Glaetzer Potts' though. Even Glaepotts would work. Or Benjo Glotts. In fact, we've found 482 anagrams they could of used...

Thankfully their wines are much more entertaining, led out by this new 2014 Glaetzer Potts The Stray Cabernet Sauvignon.

What has landed both these winemakers so many medals over the years - and made this wine great - is concentration. We're talking about flavour. Proper, South Aussie flavour, with fruit so dense you could cut it with a samurai sword.

This wine is called 'The Stray' as it is a very limited production label used for small parcels. Normally only sold at cellar door, it's a deep, inky, long and serious Langhorne Creek Cabernet with oodles of everything - tannins, fruit, oak. The whole kaboodle.

If you like wines with density and oomph, then you really should be giving this stray a new home in your cellar.

Winemaker's Notes

This is a very small volume production that isn’t made every year and is dependent on fruit quality and quantity. The varieties vary from year to year as well.
If you have managed to purchase this wine other than directly from The Winehouse, our Cellar Door at Langhorne Creek, then you are lucky that they have managed to pry it away from us and we are happy that you are getting a chance to try it.

Tasting Notes
Deep red/purple in colour, the 2014 “Stray” Cabernet Sauvignon is quite li ed & oral with a varietal nose of cassis and blackcurrant with some dried leaf, tobacco and spicy oak. The palate is quite well structured, long and silky, with cassis and dark blackcurrant fruit with ne chalky tannin, good balancing acidity and length. This wine will definitely bene t from decanting in its youth.
