Pertaringa Tipsy Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2021


This is from a 1.7 hectare vineyard in the Blewitt Springs sub-region of McLaren Vale, facing east, with the vines first planted back in 1999. This slightly elevated district provides a more elegant style, although from McLaren Vale, such terms are all rather relative. The wine sees a percentage of new French oak and undergoes an extended maturation. Inky black/maroon hue. Notes of warm earth, chocolate, bay leaves, aniseed, dry herbs and blackcurrants. This is dense but finely balanced with soft and yet abundant tannins, excellent balance and impressive length. This is a big, rich, full-throated Cabernet which will provide pleasure for fifteen to twenty years.
