Clarendon Hills Sandown Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Planted in Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale during the 1940’s the Sandown Cabernet Sauvignon site is populated by a rare pre-phylloxera Chateau Reynella Cabernet Sauvignon clone that expresses the ancient Blewitt Springs terroir with opulence and majesty. Low yielding vines produce a powerful yet refined and elegantly composed, classic Cabernet Sauvignon with notes of black currant, graphite, slate, earl grey tea, sage and bay leaf mixed with cedar shaving and baking spice with a roast meat undertone that gives the wine power and presence.
“The full-bodied 2015 Sandown Cabernet Sauvignon is packed with blueberries and cassis flavors, which pick up delightful notes of baking spices on the lively, zesty finish. Full-bodied, rich and velvety, it should drink well sooner than the 2014 and last longer.”
95/100 The Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski
