Norton Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Dense purple-crimson; flooded with rich blackcurrant varietal fruit, together with touches of earth and dark chocolate; the medium- to full-bodied palate is well-balanced and structured, and the wine should develop well.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2006 Vintage) says
Norton Estate is just outside of the official Grampians wine region, but close enough that we'll call them in ... Or on the line. Quite minty in a positive regional way - tastes of black jellybean with dusty, cedary oak, earth and bramble fruit. Medium-bodied with good juiciness through the middle, but then it goes all dry and gritty through the finish. Good wine, but a little too hard and muscular for its weight.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Ripe blackcurrant fruit; slightly simple, but unforced and flows well.
