2016 Single Vineyard Kirribilli Cabernet Sauvignon, Jim Barry, Coonawarra, Australia
“The 2016 Single Vineyard Kirribilli Cabernet Sauvignon is pure, classic and precise, from its elegant opening notes of pencil shavings and cassis to the long, velvety-textured finish. It's medium to full-bodied and fruit-driven, but it retains varietal characteristics of restraint and just a touch of austerity.” Joe Czerwinski, Jan 2019. Drink 2018+.

The Single Vineyard Cabernet was selected from their Kirribilli Vineyard in the Coonawarra and shows the hallmark richness and intensity of wines grown on the region’s famous Terra Rossa soil.
