Tarrahill La Savant Cabernets 2016

Mostly made with Yarra Valley cabernet sauvignon but with a small inclusion of shiraz. This is Tarrahill’s flagship release, in terms of its internal hierarchy.

Interesting wine. Mid weight at most, the flavours painted as much with water- as oil-based paints, so to speak. Boysenberry, light blackcurrant, cocoa and bay leaves. Tannin is about as emery-board fine as can be, though it creeps up on you as the wine breathes. Herbal notes hover like low-flying drones. Come back in five or more years.
