Little Brunswick Wine Co Grampians Shiraz Cabernet 2022
$ 34.00 incl. GST
Grown in the Rice’s vineyard, Concongella, Grampians. The marginal climate for these varieties sees alcohol at a modest 11.7%. The blend is close to 50/50 with the grapes co-fermented, and raised in a mixture of large and small format seasoned oak.
Ultra savoury and low-toned, reminiscent for us of Bordeaux against Languedoc/Cahors. Graphite, black fruited with the Cabernet component speaking right up, stretching to rose petals, lavender, and an olive tapenade/saline component. Inky and with fantastic length, thought provoking in being perhaps so contemporary it’s evoking the true old-school style of winemaking of old oak, low alcohols, fresh acid and clear potential for cellaring longevity.
