Description

The Menzies is an iconic Australian Cabernet from South Australia’s Coonawarra region… famous for world class Cabernet and its red ‘Terra Rossa’ soils. Its formidable reputation has evolved over decades and this James Halliday 97/100 rated 2018 vintage will simply grow the legend. Experimentation, innovation, minimalist intervention, small batch winemaking plus maturation in 5-year air dried oak… nothing is left on the table in terms of expense and nurture from the vine to the glass. Concentrated, classic Cabernet in a deeply evolving palate wrapped in velvety tannin and threaded by texture. Grand Cabernet to savour from 2026 - 2035+ … we suggest decanting for an hour pre-serving if enjoying prior to 2026.

Smells

Pure cassis, leather, cigar box, mint, dark chocolate, and florals erupt from the glass.

Tastes

Concentrated with blackberry and currant laced fruits it rolls over the palate in a velvety texture. Endearing notes of chocolate, mint, leather, and cigar box add to the dimension and complexity of this boisterous yet sophisticated Coonawarra Cabernet. Eminently drinkable now if you want to experience its youthful exuberance. If you're patient though, the Coonawarra beauty will prevail, evolving this wine into the multi-dimensional, harmonious, and delicious Cabernet we know and love. Enjoy with herb-crusted rack of lamb, rib roast, rump steak or a roasted vegetable creation.
