Alcira Vineyard

Deep purple with vibrant hues. Enticing dark fruit aromas of blackcurrant and mulberry mixed with a hint of mint and eucalypt entwine gracefully with earthy tones and mixed spice. Intense flavours of dark berries, vibrant cassis fruit and velvety tannins beautifully melded with subtle oak accompaniment. Pairs well with thyme and garlic roasted duck, warm lamb fillet salad or glazed veal medallions.

4 out of 5 starsReviewed on November 23, 2015

I can be voracious for this wine especially in the depths of winter. This inky black Cabernet is a rustic, chewy and corpulent wine. It will stain your glass and your teeth and offer up intense aromatics of eucalyptus, cassis and cedar. Not meant for the light hearted, this classic Coonawara Cabernet shouldn’t be missed at this price point. A great match with a tenderloin served with blackberry reduction or a big burger with aged cheddar and peppered bacon.
