Starve Dog Lane Cabernet Sauvignon, Clare Valley

Starve Dog Lane Cabernet Sauvignon, Clare Valley

The grapes for this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon come from vineyards in the south of Clare Valley. Here, established hardy vines ripen early providing grapes which are very aromatic. An intense mix of blueberry and cassis aromas with minty notes, cigar box spice and chocolate on the nose. The palate is well structured with fruit, acidity and tannins in harmony. Again, blueberry and cassis appear, this time wrapped around smooth dark chocolate tannins that lengthen into a fine, textural, cigar-box finish.
