2021 Ziggy’s Block Cabernet Sauvignon
The first non-Shiraz wine added to the lineup since 2014. Ziggy’s Block Cabernet Sauvignon, named after MT’s Dachshund & best mate Ziggy. This Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from a growers vineyard in the western village of Greenock and was suggested to us as showing Single Vineyard potential by good friends & neighbours Paulmara.
MT says; “Deep impenetrable black in colour. Intoxicating aromas of bay leaf, fresh liquorice, clove, nutmeg, blood orange, black fruits, graphite, pomegranate and menthol.”
The palate is immediately thick, luscious and coating, this wine moves slowly through your mouth with a real swagger. A rich core of deep dark fruits seamlessly unfurls along the complete length of your palate, this is a wine not for the faint hearted with a kaleidoscope of colours and reflections. The most remarkable aspect of this wine is its enduring length, its mirrors Ziggy’s shape (he is a Dachshund) as the body of the wine is over extended and incredibly long. The tannins are seamless and amazingly unnoticeable at first, on later refection they are so full of fruit that they simply reverberate all over the place. Wow, this is stunningly brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon and it will reward the people with the patience to age it.
