Knappstein have a long history of producing premium Clare Valley wine and own some of the best wine growing territory in the region. This excellent wine has snapped up a handful of medals and trophies and we can see why - think juicy blackcurrant and dark chocolate aromas and elegantly structured tannins. A cabernet superstar in the making.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Varietally expressive and beautifully fragrant with blackcurrant, sweet cherry, green olive and roasted nut aromas, it's succulent and finely textured in the mouth displaying ripe fruit intensity backed by polished tannins. Beautifully balanced and elegant with a persistent finish."
The winery writes "The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of juicy blackcurrants, dark chocolate and mint, accented by savoury notes of tobacco leaf. The palate is elegantly structured with classic flavours of chocolate and bay leaf, flowing through to ripe blackberries and fresh thyme to finish."
