Shirvington Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Shirvington Cabernet Sauvignon 750ML 2008     
Sku: 10978

Tasting notes
A very lifted and attractive wine on the nose; it has aromas of blackcurrant intermingled with flowering thyme and hints of spearmint. The palate shows bright blackberry fruit and briar like characters as well as an attractive cigar box complexity. The oak plays a nice supporting role to the fruit and the wine is nicely structured; it has lovely mouth coating and velvety tannins. It is drinking well now and will cellar well for some years.

Rating
Composed of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Shiraz, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon was 100% barrel fermented and aged for 12 months in 60% new oak and 40% one-year-old oak, with 55% American and 45% French barrels. It presents a deep garnet color and aromas of black currant cordial, black cherry preserves and dried plums over spice box, cloves, pencil lead, toast plus a whiff of lavender. Very full bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, the generosity of spicy berry flavors is well supported by a medium to firm level of very finely grained tannins and very crisp acid, finishing long and layered. Drinking nicely now, it should cellar to 2019+. (Wine Advocate Review)
