James Halliday – 86/6/4/3/1% cabernet sauvignon/petit verdot/malbec/merlot/cabernet franc. Reaching heights of near perfection, '18 was a vintage responsible for wines just like this. Supple intensity, concentration of flavour without a gram of weight, the length of flavour possessed only by very healthy, perfectly ripe and balanced grapes. What a gloriously seamless wine, continuing the proud legacy of Parterre. Drink by 2041. 96 points. - Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion

World Wine – Assured and poised, with hints of truffle within the spiced dark fruits and brambly berries. The tannins are fine and the oak spice wonderfully integrated, while the long finish is pretty much perfect. GOLD + 96 points - Decanter World Wine Awards

About This Wine

The Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 is a traditional Bordeaux blend comprising cabernet, merlot, petit verdot, cabernet franc and malbec.

Winemaking techniques emphasise the complexity attainable in a single vineyard wine delivering a taut, angular cabernet-dominant powerhouse that remains composed, svelte and elegant. Medium-bodied with a pleasing density of fruit, fine-grained graphite-like tannins and cool acidity; a decent lick of vanilla custard French oak completes the balance and shape.

Tasting Notes

Deep, dark red wine with ruby red hues. On the nose you’ll find praline and cooked-apple with citrus and lemon-grass undertones; bay leaf, sage and mint leaves; a fetching floral perfume, and baking spice and vanilla custard oak. Taste it and a formidable, lively mid-palate kicks in with a pleasing density of succulent blackberry, boysenberry and mulberry fruits, gravel, chocolate and nori. Fine grained graphite delivers a long pencilly finish. 

Cellaring Potential: Very drinkable now but patience will be rewarded for up to 10 years.
