2019 Pertaringa Rifle & Hunt Cabernet Sauvignon
A substantial Cabernet that combines both richness and concentration with a robust structure.
Matured in French oak for 20 months of which 30% was new. Magnificent density of colour – inky black at its core with a deep dark red black hue. Showing great lift out of the glass are enticing ripe blackcurrant scents which combine with some liquorice, vanillin cedar, tobacco, dried herbs and spice. Engulfing the dense, full bodied palate are rich blackcurrant and liquorice fruits which are backed by a firm tannin structure. Vanillin cedar, scorched earth, tobacco and spice characters fill out the substantial back half. Opulent yet robust mouthfeel showing superb power with a long chewy aftertaste.
Cellar 6-8 years.
