2019 Sexy Beast Cabernet Sauvignon
Sexy Beast, a succulent and luscious McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon
“I was always taught that Cabernet Sauvignon was a classical, structured and well mannered wine, but in our wonderful McLaren Vale Mediterranean climate we make it rich, brooding and powerful, underpinned by boundless energy. We call it our Sexy Beast, inspired by the 2000 cult classic movie starring Sir Ben Kingsley” – MT
Deep purple in colour with a strong hue
Bouquet explodes with black currant, smoked hickory, glazed currents, aniseed, tar with a touch or cloves and cut mint.
The palate starts out with drive and a thick sway of primary and robust fruits, this does make you guess and it’s all laid out with a beautiful clean exposure of strong fruits across the mouth.
The tannins are well integrated and offer a nice dry twist to the late palate. I’d have this firmly in the slurp-able category, it really does just slide down so easily. I take a lot of pleasure from this wine, one mouthful after another. This wine will age but offers a great deal of pleasure upon release. – MT
