The Galvo Garage Cabernet Blend

  • Details

    'Garage wines' is a term used to describe wines that are produced in the back sheds of Bordeaux winemakers, who make small batch wines of the highest quality. Our galvanized, corrugated 'garage' was built in 1927 and still houses the traditional equipment used in the handcrafting of this wine.

    Oh my goodness! First impressions... A reddish green hue. What a nose - wafts of capsicum, lots of herbs and very leafy. Capsicum accompanies the mouth, some maraschino cherries and savoury spices. White and black pepper make themselves known towards the back palate. Still quite dry from the Cabernet. A beautiful
    roundness from the Merlot. The Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc add an element of finesse, as well as a lifted vibrancy. The wine is quite fresh at this early stage. The flavours linger. There’s mouth watering acidity. A tremendous rendition of a classical French blend. This wine will cellar beautifully for the next 15+ years.
