Auswan Creek Diplomat 60 Year Old Vines Langhorne Creek Cabernet Shiraz 2019


The great Aussie red blend is done superbly here. Very dark purple in colour, it offers concentrated aromas with notes of dark berries, bergamot, cloves, spices and mulberries. Plums, florals and blackberries all make appearances. It is melding extremely well and there are some attractive chocolate notes emerging on the palate. Intense, seamless plus a lovely flick of acidity which helps carry the wine to a lengthy finish with very fine tannins. Those tannins are quite abundant but melt away. The finish has serious persistence. This is a joy now and has at least fifteen more good years ahead of it.
