2014 Thomas Hardy Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep red in colour with a crimson edge. Rich tapestry of aromatics of sweet plum, mint & mulberry fruits with cloves & nutmeg spice adding interest. French oak maturation has resulted in subtle cedar wood notes. Densely flavoured palate showing sweet bright fruits of dark plum and ripe berry beautifully integrated with subtle oak spice and sweetness. Fine lingering tannin structure gives this wine great balance and persistence of flavour.
Good vine canopies & excellent berry size resulted in a particularly strong Coonawarra vintage. The 2014 vintage closed with a long cool finish to the growing & ripening season resulting in aromatic & richly flavoured wines.
