Hewitson The Dorrien Bank Cabernet Sauvignon 2022


Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% whole bunch coaxes the black fruit perfume to swirl up and out of the glass. The deep ruby colour pops as does the ripest mulberry and blueberry fruits, vanilla and baking spice oak adds some depth to the fruit profile, reminiscent of a warmed fruit pie. Oak is noticable and so is the fruit but there is no jamminess, just a moderate weight supporting ripe and plush tannins that finish with a chalky attack to liven up your palate ready for the next sip. It really is a juxtaposition of silky ripe fruit and structure.
