The High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon
This vineyard was planted in the 19th century, and received its nickname as it was the first in the region to be trained above knee height. Over the past four decades, Cabernet Sauvignon from the High Trellis vineyard has been released under the d'Arenberg label to consistent critical acclaim, and won the coveted Jimmy Watson trophy at the 1969 Melbourne Wine Show.
Dark and intense. The wine opens with fresh cut red capsicum straight forward on the nose. Take a sip and immediately
find roasted red capsicum, liquorice, fresh tomato leaves, and mouth coating black currant characters. Hints of savoury white
and black pepper towards the back palate. A nice menthol and mint freshness.
This is nice soft and more rounded expression of this wine. Firm and velvety tannins envelope the mouth, a little bit grippy. A long lingering finish. Exceptional Cabernet. This will age beautifully.
