MVP Cabernet Sauvignon - 2014
MVP is our Most Valuable Player, and the pinnacle of the winery.
With 10% whole bunch, this was native fermented with extended skin contact and spent 6 months in new French oak before being racked to older barrels for further ageing. Graphite, iron, tobacco, worn cherry, ripe sweet strawberries flood a muscular palate, buoyant with acidity and seasoned with fine spice. Tannins are sinewy, but well absorbed by the dense fruit, taking this to a warming cinnamon and mint finish. Ideal with rare beef and / or roasted root veg, this is drinking very smartly now, nearly a decade along.
Cellar: Up to 25 years
