The Gate

The Gate Cabernet Shiraz 2018


Tasting Note

Vibrant black cherry red. Blackcurrant and blueberry Cabernet aromas meld with the blackberry and savoury earthiness of the Shiraz. Moreish chewy fruit tannins, along with a slate-like minerality restrain the luscious dark berry mid-palate. This estate reserve wine is a classic, vibrant and fruit-forward McLaren Vale Cabernet Shiraz from the excellent 2018 vintage.
