Magarey Lane Glenroy Cabernet Sauvignon 2016


Vines for this bottling are 30 years old, from erra Rossa soils and destemmed berries. Matured in a mix of French and American barrels and hogsheads for 18 months with further maturation in bottle. Bilberry, blackcurrants and just picked boysenberry. Fresh potting soil, cassia bark and crushed granite. Clove, mace, and allspice. Pencil box and cigar clippings. A muscular wine with good layers of spice and a nice dry finish to the tannins. Still plenty of youth and vibrancy in a tightly coiled package. Drink now and it has the ability of another few years of cellaring too. A good old scotch fillet and peppercorn sauce would be a treat alongside it.
