Wantirna Estate Amelia Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot

Wantirna is one of the great cabernets of Victoria, irresistible in its youth, and it will only improve. Breathtakingly floral, with pristine violet and rose petal lift over impeccable cabernet definition of red- and blackcurrants, capsicum, tobacco leaf and cedar. The palate is ultra-fine and superbly refined, built around pristine red fruits and lingering rose hip perfume, woven seamlessly by the finest silk thread of tannin. Fruit, tannin, acid and oak find delightful integration from the outset, while promising a very long future. $60 at Banks, Wine Box Warehouse and No Frills.
