Victory Point Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
From vines that are now over 25 years old this is super fragrant with salty plum, black olive, thyme and sage jumping out of the glass. The palate is elegant and refined with the tannins very fine and powdery against the refreshing acidity. The balance and tension between flavour the structure are seamless. The fruit has a purity and intensity that draws you back in to take another sip. The length keeps going and fans across the tongue like a peacock’s tail with bright flavours of cassis, mulberry, cedar, tomato leaf and a dash of oregano and basil. Sip this with home-made Shepherd’s pie (lamb mince, a rich gravy and buttery mashed potato).
