Juniper Aquitaine Rouge 750ml (Margaret River, WA)
This elegantly proportioned blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc has created an intensely flavourful wine with great depth and structure. The aroma is both complex and enticing with generous ripe fruit characters of black currant, dark cherry, mulberry and plum, which are supported by biscuity oak, liquorice, violets and dried herbs. On tasting, the juicy ripe fruit flavours are intense with mouth filling generosity, balanced with savoury black olive and slate like tannins that guide the wine effortlessly through the palate. Approachable now, but with ageing potential to at least 2027.
