Corryton Burge The Brigadier Cabernet Sauvignon 2021


The wine is a tribute to Dad. No doubt, he’d be very happy with that and even more so with the wine. Barossa Cabernet can be so underrated, warm climate it might be, but in good years, the flavours are ripe and rich. The fruit for this wine is a mix of both Barossan and Eden Valley Cabernet. Dark maroon, the nose gives us notes of dried herbs, tobacco leaves, chocolate, licorice, blackberries and warm earth. A hint of truffles and cedar, there is a supple texture which leads through to slightly grainy tannins. Good balance and fine acidity, this will drink very well for the next eight to ten years.
