A-Label Estate 2016 Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Add to cart

  • A-Label Estate 2016 Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 

    A classic smooth Cabernet Sauvignon from a quintessential Barossa Valley Cabernet vintage. It is approachable on opening, and its compelling aromas of juniper, black pepper and mint along with flavours of dark chocolate, plum and blackcurrant will have you coming back for more.

    It’s a delicious, softer, riper style of Cabernet Sauvignon Wine, which makes it a perfect fit for those who also love a rounder fuller style.

    Located in the iconic sub region of Ebenezer this is from one of the Barossa Valley’s most prized grape growing patches of dirt. The ancient soils in this area restrict the vines growth and give us a wine high in intensity and concentration.

    This Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine to be experienced.
