Vineyard Road Moppa Springs Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
The wine spent 31 months maturing in a mix of American and French oak. A dark, near opaque maroon, there are notes of dry herbs, warm earth, black fruits, cloves, aniseed, while still exhibiting some evidence of the oak, which has melded well. Tight and well structured, there is also a slight tarry note contributing to the complexity. Powerfully flavoured, good concentration throughout, there is good length here and firm tannins. A nicely balanced wine that will continue to provide pleasure over the next ten to twelve years.
