Welland Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2022


Cabernet from a combination of the Barossa and the Eden Valleys, released while still in the first blush of youth. Destemmed and crushed into a fermenter for a week with twice daily pumpovers, then to French oak for a year. Stunning stuff for such a young wine. Vibrant purple with notes of bay leaves, blackberries, dry herbs, chocolate, spices and more chocolate. Sweet rich Barossa fruit with a flick of oak, the palate moves more to plums, cassis and aniseed. Quite delicious and exuberant. Soft texture, silky fine tannins and excellent length here. Shows just how brilliant good Barossa Cabernet can be in the right vintage. This will provide pleasure for a decade and is stunning value.
