Lehmann Hesketh MK02 Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 75cl
‘Mk 02’ is made up of 60% Reynell Selection Cabernet Sauvignon from Southern Coonawarra and 40% Eden Valley Shiraz.
A full-flavoured 2015 vintage from both regions has produced a complex and brooding style of wine. The Eden Valley component brings an added aromatic freshness that has paired nicely with the traditional Coonawarra Cabernet notes. Think mulberry, cedar, and dark chocolate.
"60% Reynell Selection cabernet sauvignon from the Parker Estate Abbey Vineyard in Coonawarra, 40% shiraz from the Eden Valley, fermented separately, matured for 18 months in French oak before blending. Given the grape resources and the vinification, it would be surprising if this wasn’t a top flight wine – and there’s no surprise. It marries intensity with elegance, red and blackcurrant with red and black cherry fruit held in a filmy veil of high-quality oak and ripe tannins. Great stuff.”
