Mount Langi Ghiran Cabernet-Merlot 1998
This vintage has produced a wine with a statement: superb deep colour, balanced grape tannins and 20 months in oak barriques (30% American to soften the firmer French oak tannins). Our Cinderella Cabernet blend has joined her big brother Shiraz to share the recognition of our 'Blue Label' wines. (From bottle label)
Nose: Plums, rich red berries, caramel from oak, tobacco. Palate: Sharp red berries, plum, pencil shavings, black tea, firm tannins, oak. Fresh, sharp acid, long on the palate. Tobacco and herbal smell in empty glass.
