Hastwell & Lightfoot [McLaren Vale SA], Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This Hastwell & Lightfoot 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, from their restructured vines displays a vibrant mulberry colour.
This leads to an enticing nose of dry straw, top notes of red fruit and eucalyptus and a waft of tobacco.
The slippery savoury tannins roll across the tongue and palate, aided and abetted by the 14% Alc muscle.
The touch of Cabernet Franc in the final blend adds a teasing floral note to round off and support the punchy & satistying fruit delivery
This is a judiciously massaged mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon reflective of its region and variety. It's one that is eminently enjoyable  now but will continue to deliver & please over the next 3 or so years.
A good match to hearty protein dishes
