Expert Reviews

Rob Geddes MW (2010 Vintage) says
Black fruits, subtle carmel oak toast, almost confectionary cherry and a lift of floral red fruits building into mirepoix. Simple powerful bright black cherry and black berry fruits with medium firm tannins and medium long. Generous juicy and drinking well now.

Peterkin makes good use of these three varieties. The ‘f’ on the end is a light touch of cabernet franc which is apparent in the floral lift on the nose. Rich leafy black fruits with some understated black olive. The plush middle palate comes from the merlot while that cabernet provides the spine and focus to the finish.

By way of explanation this is cabernet sauvignon and merlot with a light touch of cabernet franc - hence the L.T.Cf. Clearly one of the best yet from Peterkin. Dark chocolate and leafy black currant fruit cake on the nose with some light spicy oak influence. There's an enticing sweet fruit influence on the palate but the balancing oak and tannin creates an elegant focus.

Nick Stock (2008 Vintage) says
A very nicely ripened blend that really speaks of bright, ripe friut: plenty of cassis here, some regional leaf and herb overlay, and a little mulberry and cherry. The palate's light, even, ripe and soft: really supple and open tannins make this an early-Drinking prospect. Beautiful balance, and a lick of toasty oak to close.

Light but bright hue; a stylish, medium-bodied wine that establishes a tension between its bright fruits and fine, savoury/spicy tannins, the long palate well balanced and complete.

Margaret River is exciting for cabernet blends as the wines have a varietal fragrance; blackcurrant to black olive. Here they gain weight and richness each year looking entirely delicious.

One of the best examples of this blend yet from Mike Peterkin. Red fruits dominate the highly perfumed bouquet. An excellent vintage has allowed Peterkin to weave something special in here with this excellent Bordeaux style red wine.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Not only has a touch of cabernet franc, but also petit verdot and malbec. It is a great example of regional Cabernet Merlot in the fullest and best style of the Margaret River, marrying intensity with grace; almost lilting red and black fruits, and very fine tannins on the long finish. Great value

Ray Jordan (2005 Vintage) says
Has a slightly leafy overlay across the bouquet with deeper black currant and ripe plum characters emerging slowly with breathing. The palate is a beautifully seamless mix of fine ripe grain tannins and smoothly textured fruit.

Light- to medium-bodied; tending austere, with some olive, earth notes along with blackcurrant; subtle oak. (LTCf stands for 'little touch of cabernet franc.)

Fragrant fruit aromas, then pronounced tannins run through the length of the palate, presently enveloping the fruit. Patience should reward.
