"The Last Letter" Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Legacy Collection

96 POINTS
Huon Hooke, www.therealreview.com, 2017

“This is a dense, very oaky, very ripe and not really varietal cabernet. It's all about concentration and power, not varietal character, and is designed to age. Chocolate, tar and cocoa powder. Full-bodied, soft rich and fleshy. Lots of extract, assisted by lavish oak. (A blend of Rowland Flat, Greenock and Williamstown fruit. The name commemorates the last letter Hugo Gramp wrote to his young son Colin the night before dying in a plane crash in 1938.)”

 

*Maximum order of 1 bottle per customer

Bouquet: The nose reveals dense, dark berry fruit with a complex edge of iodine, which is lifted by lovely notes of sweet spice from the French oak.

Palate: Concentrated flavours of ripe forest fruits and rich dark chocolate flood the palate, supported by powerful tannins that will see this wine stand up beautifully as it ages. The influence of oak is elegant; integrated seamlessly to add layers of complexity on the palate.

Cellaring Potential: Ideal Drinking Window 2017 - 2030

Serving Suggestion: Enjoy with Rosemary and garlic marinated lamb rack with creamy mashed potato, steamed beans and pan juices.
