The entry level Domaine Naturaliste Cabernet Sauvignon here and it punches well above its weight. With splashes of Merlot and Cabernet Franc thrown in, the wine delivers exceptional complexity and sheer drinkability for the price. Bright deep ruby, the aromas are enticing and immediately draw you in. Blackcurrant, graphite and subtle oak with crushed leaves to provide some freshness and lift. The palate then has genuine impact thanks to juicy acidity, ripe dark fruits and dried herb flavours with just enough sinewy tannins and French oak to bring it all together into an elegant package, topped off by an extended finish. Great Margaret River buying for $25.
