Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

15% native fermentation for the reds Spicy nose on the nose with a little green peppercorn notes and lovely dried chile base note supporting a huge core of black currant fruit with hints of rye bread and roast beef juices adding some detail. Wow this is rich on entry, it's not fat or weighty with somewhat lacy but firm structure restraining lots of black currant fruit, Big, chewy fruit tannins emerge on the midpalate driving the chocolate necco wafer tinged blueberry fruit on the finish. This is an imposing wine, tannic and rich but at the same time it’s pure and so well balanced. It needs several years in the cellar but should be fantastic with time. 94pts

Spanish for bee, name is pronounced 'ah-BAY-ha'. Name is chosen for its simple beauty and its reminder of times past when farming implied a respect for the environment and close connection to the earth. Abeja is located on a century olad farmstead in the breathtaking foothills of the Blue Mountains. Once seriously dilapidated, all of the original farm buildings have been carefully restored with an emphasis on craftsmanship and longevity. Creative use of salvaged materials adds interest and sets the stage for renewed purpose in these old buildings, which now house our winery and our guests. Read less
