Vineyard Road Alessandra Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
The fruit here is sourced from the Barossa Valley floor and the Corryton Park Estate in the Eden Valley.
This is a cracker. Maroon with a red/purple rim, the nose gives us soy, florals, leather, cloves, beef stock, vegemite, coffee grinds, dark berries and a little chocolate. A good mature red, which is finely balanced. Intensity and that tight-knit structure one seeks, give indication that this is only a small way along the journey it promises. Good focus, silky tannins and excellent length, there is so much to like. This has at least a good decade ahead, so don’t be afraid to cellar case.
