Rare Bottling Winemakers Choice
Glug Reserve Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Region: Barossa Valley, SA
This wine appeared out of no-where for the mid-October winery tasting.
Benjamin has a way of keeping several good wines aside so in this respect it is fair to call this the ‘winemakers’ selection.
Cabernet is overly praised when from cool climates and if you are a Cabernet drinker drift back and find the power, the sense of wonder, in this brilliant Barossan.
Old Cabernet vines date back to the 1890s in the northern Barossa though the modern plantings such as used for this wine date from the 1970s and 1980s.
The grapes are treated in the same way as Shiraz so the final wine is Barossa first and Cabernet second.
