Description

Alan Limmer really put the Gimblett Gravels on the map, his Stonecroft vineyard containing some of the oldest vines in the region. When Alan retired, he passed the torch to Dermot McCollum and Andria Monin. The pair have grasped the mantle with both hands, their opulent reserve range of reds ranking up there with the finest and most age-worthy wines annually. This quadruple 95-96 / 100, 2020 vintage of a generation Cabernet Sauvignon, is a majestic and hedonistic expression of the grape, superbly inky and concentrated with poise and freshness in abundance. Eminently drinkable in its youth as the great reds are... it will be 10 years before she's nearing her peak and another 10 holding it.

Smells

A beautiful assault on the olfactory senses with an indulgent bouquet of cassis, tobacco, liquorice, and leather.

Tastes

Wonderfully proportioned classical Cabernet and generous to a fault, the richness of black fruits fruit, fineness of tannin and length of palate… all point to a stunning future and long life. For all of that though, the wine remains approachable in its youth - an hour or two in the decanter while your roast cooks should just about do it! Enjoy now to 2030+.
