Raidis Estate “Billy” Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
$ 30.00 incl. GST
Blended from the southern vineyard and the original home block, a lovely rendition of Coonawarra’s mainstay variety. This is a smashing release, with a richness and approachability, though plenty of structural stuffing for complexity and cellaring potential. At 13.5% alcohol this is a finer style than many, though unmistakably Cabernet. Has a plushness to its feel, fruit is capsicum, cranberry and red currant, tannins feel ripe and fruit derived (a recurring theme in this set of reds), and just a hint of leafiness. Lacks the sternness of some Cabs, this is a style of fruit purity, very easy to like.
