Primo Estate Joseph Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Moda

How can a wine possess such monumental concentration and impact of flavour at fifteen percent alcohol, and yet such poise and finesse, with no suggestion of heat or stewy fruit? Simple. Let the grapes dry and shrivel after they’re picked rather than before! This is the Italian Amarone method, producing concentration while retaining acidity and perfectly ripe flavour. Immense depth of blackcurrants and capsicum is lined with high cocoa dark chocolate and cedar oak. The Amarone method also makes for impressive tannin finesse – firm, yet magnificently fine and mouth-filling, carrying the mineral texture of Primo’s Angel Gully vineyard. Remarkable length, undeviating line and monumental stamina confirm one of the greatest Modas yet. $61 at Discount Wines
