Sally's Paddock Sally's Hill Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

We’d like to spend a lot more time with Sally in her paddock because these are seriously elegant wines that show the Pyrenees region at its very best. Already showing some aged character thanks to five years in the bottle this wine is perfumed with red cherry, chocolate, blackberry and vanilla. There’s amazing depth of flavour here, gravelly tannins and nicely integrated oak. A really smart package for the price.

Winemaker's Notes

Great Ruby/Garnet Colour. Cabernet grape aromas with overtones of vanilla, dark chocolate, cherry liqueur and red cherry. Very well developed, barrel aged, soft, restrained Cabernet characters, light oak background, fruit flavours like morello cherries, after taste of dark cherries and blackberries with a touch of vanilla. Intense and dense brambly mid palate, great depth, intense tight Cabernet grape flavours, beautifully balanced, nice lengthy tannins. Delicious liqueured finish married to integrated soft tannins and mild new French oak. Good cellaring potential.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Powerful, concentrated, earthy wine, with classic, slightly severe, cabernet fruit, finishing with firm tannins; demands patience.
