Rolf Binder Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Australia / South Australia
Andy's Tasting Notes
Great depth, richness and lots of nuance on this very well priced example. Beautifully fragrant – blackcurrant and cassis fruit with hints of cedar, dried cherry, nutmeg and chocolate. Has a really pure, velvety and long finish.
Price per bottle £12.60
Christa and Rolf form the heart of Rolf Binder wines, continuing a family wine-making tradition that spans nearly 60 years. Their parents arrived in Australia in 1950 – just two amongst the many post-war immigrants from Europe – and met a grape grower in the Barossa while working to help pay for their assisted passage. From such unlikely beginnings, a passion for the Barossa was born, a winery was purchased and a new life began. They soon came to appreciate the riches of the Barossa, the old vine Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache, and were at the forefront of many old vine varietal blends. Now Christa and Rolf are taking the winery into the 21st century, with Rolf forging a world-wide reputation for his red wines while Christa takes the plaudits for her white wines.
