Warramunda Estate The Compass 2019


An exquisite Yarra Valley red here which delivers plenty of understated power, complexity and balance. Mid but not deep ruby, this is a wine that does not put all of its cards on the table straight away releasing its many charms over an hour or two. It starts with pure red and dark berry fruits before crushed violets and cedar complexity slowly energy with a veneer of French oak, all with a youthful freshness. The palate then shows delightful elegance and softness of texture making it very approachable although there is also a firm seam of tannin providing structure which supports a long and fleshy finish. It’s a delicious expression of Yarra Valley Cabernet that, while already drinkable, certainly has the stuffing to also age well.
