2005 Gemtree Tatty Road Cabernet Sauvignon
Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc blend
Gemtree vineyards of McLaren Vale produce a solid range of satisfying wines. While all of their wines have merit, a particular favourite of mine is Tatty Road, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. These four varieties have been blended together to create a wine with excellent depth and harmony. There are mouthfuls of plummy fruits and well integrated tannins. Serve with slow cooked lamb to ward off the winter chills.
Available from fine wine stores – or contact the winery directly.
