The 2014 Velvet & Willow Cabernet Sauvignon displays a bright lively colour with gorgeous purple hues, restrained aromas and hints of cinnamon and spices.
The wine has a rich, flavoursome palate redolent with ripe fruit flavours and some vanillin oak. On the finish it has some tight grippy tannins which will soften and round out over time.
These top quality, low-yielding, fully ripened grapes were fermented and hand plunged in open vats before being matured in French and American oak barrels.
This wine is excellent drinking right now, however, over the next few years the tannins will round out and make the wine smoother and richer until it fully matures in around 3-5 years’ time. When it will be a sensational example of an elegant, mature, Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Being a big wine, it goes best with rich, hearty meals or with a strong vintage cheese.
