2016 Queens Pinch Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Mudgee – There’s a good reason that cabernet sauvignon is often seen as the most ‘noble’ of grape varieties (and it’s not just old-world snobbery). The wine that it produces is complex and layered, with a rich, heady flavour. At its best — as in the Queen Pinch Cab Sav — it is characterised by blackcurrant and licorice.
Full-bodied and with a depth of taste that only comes with the long, slow ripening for which the region is famed, Queens Pinch Cabernet Sauvignon is made from fruit grown on low-cropped vines on north facing slopes. In other words, ideal conditions for producing outstanding grapes and, in turn, very special wine.
Cab sav is a classic match for a great steak or lamb dish, but Queen Pinch Cabernet Sauvignon is also perfect for enjoying unaccompanied by anything other than good conversation — shady verandah and view of the rolling Mudgee hills optional.
