Good Luck Club Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Magpie Estate purchased the Smalltown block in 2016, 40 hectares of 28 year old Shiraz and Cabernet. This wine was aged in new and tertiary French oak for 24 months. The oak lends a subtle texture and structure to the fruit leaving the palate fresh so this is a bright, varietal Cab that wears its oak lightly as a structural veil rather than anything more monstrous.
Notes of shoe-leather on the nose with a palate driven by fresh cassis, vanilla, a dollop of cream and the texture of a lolly-stick sucked clean. Great value full bodied Cab!
