2012 Limited Release Kelsea's Cabernet Sauvignon

2012 Kelsea's Cabernet Sauvignon

Limited Release
The Limited Release Kelsea's Cabernet Sauvignon is a vibrant and beautiful red wine. Bold tones of dark chocolate, mulberries and black fruits are accompanied by hints of cassis, glazed cherries and cinnamon. The palate enters with aromas of cedar, leather and a slight cherry tartness, developing into a seamless mid-palate driven by ripe, supple tannin and finishing with a powerful roast coffee and plum pudding twist. 15 months in French oak. A classic Wilyabrup cabernet sauvignon to be sipped and savoured. Drink now or be rewarded with cellaring.

2012 Kelsea's Cabernet Sauvignon


95/100, James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2017, A full bodied, complex cabernet that has had all the winemaking dials turned up to maximum, but in tune with each other, and in balance. The primary blackcurrant fruit is hedged by black olive, the tannins positive but fine, the oak obvious but not excessive. Drink to 2037.
