Rich and Full Flavoured
Kitts Creek Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Region: Barossa Valley, SA
I’m not a believer in the idea that each grape variety reaches some ideal of perfection within a narrow climate-weather range. Rather I see a broad range of flavours as best suited to the varied
I refer of course to the view that a cool, maritime climate brings out the best in Cabernet Sauvignon. Yet I have enjoyed Lakes Folly Cabernets and the best of the Clare Valley and the Barossa Valley and the more variety the better, from warm or cool regions. Of course you must try Bordeaux, Coonawarra, and Margaret River but I have no doubt that a Barossa Valley Cabernet is also a great wine.
I have fond memories of Penfolds Barossa Cabernets, those from the Wolf Blass premium colour range, and startling mature Orlando Cabernets from the 1950s. Thus when given the chance to take a few tonnes of Cabernet from 2015 we leapt at the opportunity to increase our holdings.
The result is this fabulous wine, plush and fruity and dripping with intense flavours - how can you go wrong.
