Monterra Fleurieu Cabernets 2020

Special Price $22.00 Regular Price $25.00
A stunning blend of Cabernets; Cabernet Sauvignon (66%), Cabernet Franc (32%) and Petit Verdot (2%). We looked at 49 wines in total on the day we tasted this. Everyone picked this wine either as the best wine of the day, their favorite or both. It is perfumed, juicy and crunchy. Punchy red fruits getting jiggy with talcum powder, black tea, pastilles and cedar. It finishes with fine tannins. A joy to drink now and will cellar well for years too.

Monterra is a brand split across the Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. Mike Farmilo is the winemaker here, former maker of Penfolds Grange and twice winner of the Jimmy Watson trophy. Brad Rey is also heavily involved (Zonte’s Footstep). The quality of the reds is superb, as the medal cabinet attests.
