Avalon Tree Cabernet

- Appellation: Fleurieu
- Varietal Composition: Cabernet Sauvignon
- Vintage: 2015
- Alcohol: 14.5%
- Vinted and Bottled by: Zonte’s Footstep


Appearance & Aroma:
Opaque inky black/purple color with a deep regal purple hue. Inviting aromas of cassis, dark cherries and licorice smells with undertones of cedar, dark chocolate and clotted cream.

Taste:
Direct, full, fine and precise Cabernet berry fruits on entry. Mid palate delivers velvety mouth filling fruit, especially blackberries and blackcurrants and juicy fresh berry tart-sweetness, tempered with some chewy but typical Cabernet tannin. After palate brings enticing cigar box and plush fruit flavors with taught, trademark tannin. Intense and complex with the depth of dark berry flavors. This wine hangs about after you have tasted it for so long it seems almost self defeating, although the tannins call for another sip whilst it’s still in the mouth. Precise ‘line and length’ lingers on and on with ripe blackcurrants and cherries, licorice and spicy cedar finish.


Food Pairing:
Ideal at a round table with meal, mates and meat pies
