The Good Luck Club, Cabernet Sauvignon
Summer pudding reaches from the glass, there is an abundance of blackberry and cassis fruit with a naughty creaminess of oak that marries on the palate for a bold pastiche of old vine Barossa Cabernet. This wine was aged in new and tertiary French oak for 24 months. The oak lends a subtle texture and structure to the fruit leaving the palate fresh, so this is a bright, varietal Cab that wears its oak lightly as a structural veil.
Ideal with steak tartare, seared tuna, roast Mediterranean veg and some crunchy, matured hard cheese.
