2018 CHAR NO.3 Cabernet Sauvignon
CHAR NO.3 Cabernet Sauvignon is a fine expression of archetypal McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon, displaying fantastic varietal characters of cassis, chocolate and mocha. The fine tannins and oak spice provide complexity and length of palate with a smooth finish.
2018 saw a typically warm and dry growing season in McLaren Vale with temperatures generally 1 degree Celsius above average. Spring rains brought good growth and soil moisture out of a relatively dry winter. January and February saw near ideal conditions deliver Cabernet Sauvignon with intense colour and flavour development.
Rich notes of red currants, plum with thyme and savoury ground spice. Bold tannins and complexity balanced with incredible length.
