Deep Sands Shiraz Cabernet
Woodstock Deep Sands Shiraz Cabernet - McLaren Vale, Australia - 75cl
In this classic Australian blend, shiraz provides fleshy fruit, spice and middle palate weight, and the cabernet sauvignon a sturdy backbone and texture. The grapes were sourced from the estate as well as neighbouring vineyards in McLaren Vale. The wine was aged over 18 months in 2- and 3-year-old French and American oak. A burst of juicy grape flavours showing dark berries, blackcurrants and a touch of spice. Vibrant and approachable with juicy savoury tannins built around a fine linear structure.
The winery has enjoyed a strong reputaton for making Cabernet Sauvignon since 1982. Situated in the higher and cooler end of the Vale, the estate is the perfect home for the variety, with warm, sunny days and cool evening gully and sea breezes ensuring the Cabernet ripens well and retains its natural acidity and full-bodied style.
