Why do we love this wine?

93, 92, 92, 92, 92, 90: not since Kane Williamson have we seen such a quality run of scores, but this McLaren Vale vino may just have bested him. I mean, has Williamson ever won a Gold Medal at the China Wine & Spirits Awards? Doubt it.

Concentrated

Aromas of black cherries, blackcurrant, cinnamon and pepper give way to flavours of blackberry and blackcurrant as well as coffee and cedar. Smoother than a well-timed cover drive and fuller than the perfect yorker, Pertaringa have nailed it once again with their ‘15 Understudy cabernet. Howzat, mofos?
