Eight at the Gate Family Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2021


The team offer this as their prestige release – Cabernet from a cracking vintage which has spent two years in a combination of new and older French and American oak. A deep magenta hue here, with an attractive and classic Cabernet nose. Hints of dried herbs and tobacco leaves, along with blackcurrants, coffee grinds and bay leaves. There is plenty of grip and excellent length, with a line of acidity running the full journey. Should hit its peak in around five to eight years.
