Kilikanoon Meyman’s Cabernet 2020


This exciting Clare Valley winery continues to pump out cracking wines. The Meymans Block, 4 ½ hectares under vine, was planted back in 2000 as a dry grown Shiraz vineyard. The fruit here is also a regular contributor to their Covenant Shiraz. As we have seen, we also have quality Riesling fruit from it and now, Cabernet. This is a dark but vibrant purple. A lovely plush and lifted nose. Chocolate notes, coffee beans, vanilla, mocha, this is a richly flavoured and well balanced Clare Cabernet. Seamless, with ultra-fine tannins. Very good length here which is carried by a pleasing flick of acidity. Real length. A wine of poise and generosity. This has decades ahead of it. Delicious warmer climate Cabernet and has all the flavours that go with that.
