Discovery 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

$24.00

MEMBERS: $19.20

A classic and unhindered expression of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon, sculpted tannins and lifted red berry perfumes. A paragon of personality, purpose and approachability for those who enjoy soft tannins, succulent red fruits and simply love wine.

Aromas of cassis, red cherries and bright red fruit underpinned by a seamless of palate of raspberries, plum skin, bright red fruits and silky, textured tannin on the finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Growing Season

A long, cold and wet winter put the vines in good stead the season to come. Moderate temperatures and constant summer breezes, along with manicured canopies led to pristine fruit. This gentle and consistent ripening in idyllic conditions has led to wines of unsurpassable fruit purity and textural drive.
