Wakefield Wines 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
Clare Valley, South Australia
Family owned Wakefield is a perennial powerhouse at the InterVin International Wine Awards, particularly in the Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz classes. The rich and ripe profile (blackcurrant, cassis and mint dominate) of this jam-packed Clare Valley Cabernet makes it stand out. There are layers of flavour on the plush palate, with ripe tannins and a long, lingering finish. The sweet-ish core of fruit makes for an extremely crowd-pleasing style.
