Erin Eyes Ballycapple Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The most powerful Erin Eyes Cab to date. Blue fruits perfume the nose with blackcurrant, black olive, plum, a twist of dark chocolate, spice and assertively angular greenery on the palate. Delicious now but will cellar well for 10-15 years, too.

Allow us to prattle on a little more about this...

James Halliday nominated Erin Eyes as one of his 10 Dark Horse Wineries in 2015 and in 2017 has upgraded Erin Eyes to 5 red stars. Unsurprisingly Erin Eyes produces some stellar wines, particularly from Riesling and Cabernet to which the Clare Valley is so superbly suited. Owner Steve Wiblin has had a long career in the wine industry, working first for Wynns and Seaview, and Orlando before co-founding Neagle’s Rock. After selling his share in Neagles he has concentrated on making tiny batches under the Erin Eyes label.
