The Inventor 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
"Classically styled and gracefully complex, the wine shows blackcurrant, spiced cherry, mint chocolate, anise and cedar characters on the nose, followed by a wonderfully harmonious palate that's ripe and flavoursome. It's elegantly structured by supple tannins, offering terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2026." *94 points* - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
McLaren Vale experienced a wet winter, and spring set the vines up well for the season ahead. While there was some summer rain early on, disease pressure remained low. Conditions were ideal for concentrated flavour development and acid retention.
Sourced from selected Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards located in the premium growing area of McLaren Vale.
Fruit was fermented to dryness on skins. Following pressing, clarification and blending, the wine was matured in French oak hogsheads for 12 months prior to bottling.
Moussaka, ideal whether making a vegetarian style, or using a lean lamb mince.
