Pirramimma Stock’s Hill Cabernet Merlot 2018
This is a delicious wine and cracking value. Dark maroon in colour, there are aromas of chocolate, earth, tobacco leaf, animal skins, leather, dark berries and black olives. Gentle oak is evident but not intrusive. A blend from McLaren Vale of Cabernet and Merlot, the wine gives even more on the palate, with a lovely richness kicking in. Great example of what a superb vintage 2018 is for the region. The wine has focus and length, finishing with soft, fine tannins. I’d have no hesitation either drinking this today or cellaring it for a decade.
