This wine is an absolute monster! Big, bold, powerful, juicy and well structured, this Appassimento is a super full body wine which will please the “big red wine drinker” with it’s 17% alcohol. The 2018 vintage was a challenging one and Graham Rennie made the decision to not produce the “Super G” wine, so all his best Cabernet Sauvignon fruits went in this “declassified” wine. Lucky for us, we only pay half the price. The nose offers aromas of graphite, expresso coffee, blackberry, crème de cassis and dried herbs. The palate is completely in line with the aromas which make this wine fairly linear with a sense of precision. Despite the high alcohol, there’s a great freshness on the mid-palate offering flavours of mint and dark chocolate which make a positive difference before the tannins hit you at the end. Even if the tannins are grippy at this stage, it fits the personality of this big and unapologetic red wine perfectly; but don’t worry, it will soften up with time. Decanting this wine is a must! Very impressive… (CWC, 04/12/22). 50 cases made.
