2018 Blacksmith Cabernet Sauvignon 6 pack

Wine Club discount applies

In 1842 a 32-year-old Blacksmith, Christian Auricht, arrived from Prussia with his wife and four children. He settled in the new village of Langmeil and established a forge in what was to become a thriving trading post. His original  smithy  remains  to this day and is  a feature of the winery’s heritage setting.

Deep purple colour, vibrant and imposing. Aromas of blackberries and dark soy, oak is lurking though quiet. Black olives and leathery notes lead the palate. Blackberries, again, hit the middle palate with energy. Acidity is measured and tannins soft. A primary, generous style. Loads of charm and drinkability. Nick Butler 91 points.
