d’Arenberg High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon from McLaren Vale, a fruity, seductive style with rich, dark fruits, cassis and appealing herbal notes.

This vineyard was planted in the 19th century, and received its nickname as it was the first in the region to be trained above knee height. Over the past four decades, Cabernet Sauvignon from the High Trellis vineyard has been released under the d’Arenberg label to consistent critical acclaim, and won the coveted Jimmy Watson trophy at the 1969 Melbourne Wine Show.

d’Arenberg High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine of great presence, loaded with classic Cabernet Sauvignon characters of cassis, plums, cedar, red capsicum and violets. Despite the depth and complexity of the fruit, the palate remains true to Cabernet form, providing a sleek mouthfeel framed by a long line of fine, chalky tannins. Powerful, aromatic, persistent and charming all at once. While this wine offers enough fruit to be enjoyed in youth, expect 5-8 further years of careful cellaring to enhance its overall quality and enjoyment.

This is quite a serious Cabernet for the price. Black olive, bay leaf and blackberry dominate the nose with loads of plum and black currant strewn across the palate. Great fruit intensity with masses of spice and tannin. This wine would be well matched to any lamb dish.
