2018 Bella Luna Cabernet Merlot
Out of stock
The resultant wine is simultaneously showcasing phenomenal intensity and poise. On the nose, there is luscious black plum and mulberries, intertwined with a beguiling, vanilla, cinnamon and bay leaf. In the mouth there is pronounced savoury presence, evoking black olive carried by ripe black currant and cherry fruit. A fantastic wine that has a long life ahead of it.

From the home vineyard at O’Connell between Bathurst and Oberon. An after-dinner biscuit meld of chocolate and mint. Yet, as is the wont at this address, the structural latticework is impeccably engineered; the tannins, detailed and ripe. The oak, smart. Verdant herb, bell pepper, a smear of black olive, cassis and bouquet garni. This will age very well, eventually sublimating the minty sweetness into something more nourishing and savoury. 94 points, Ned Goodwin (Halliday Wine Companion)
