2016 James Peter 'The Cabernets'
This Hunter Valley wine tastes as good as it smells.
Region: Hunter Valley
Variety: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon
Five years old now this wine tastes as good as it smells. In the spirit of a true Bordeaux Blend we have used Cabernet Sauvignon combined with C. Franc, both were aged in French & American oak independently. Perfect drinking now; pair with red-meat dishes, seasoned simply with salt & pepper. The true meaning of Bordeaux Blend is the combination of red grape varieties grown in Bordeaux, France. Cabernet Sauvignon is a compulsory element in this wine followed closely by Merlot, as mentioned we used Cabernet Franc instead.
