D'Arenberg High Trellis Cabernet Australia South Australia Fleurieu Mclaren Vale Red 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose is full of blackcurrant and blueberry characters with a lovely mint leaf lift and a spicy undertone. The characters are ripe, yet remain balanced with touches of florals adding elegance. Dark plum and red fruits are added to the mix before a savory mid palate emerges with earthy characters, hints of coffee, black olive and more spice framed well by fine gravelly tannins and just a hint of oak. Considering the challenging vintage conditions, the generous fruit flavor is surprisingly well balanced by earth notes, flowers and leafy lift along with good tannin structure.
