2019 Dukes ‘Magpie Hill Reserve’ Great Southern Cabernet Sauvignon
Fifteen years ago Ian 'Duke' Ranson and wife Hilde planted their retirement property with Riesling, Shiraz & Cabernet. From their first vintage they have not looked back. The ‘Magpie Hill' range is their top release every vintage. The Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with blackcurrant cassis and earthy / savoury edges.
Below is the Halliday 'Wine Companion' review.
“As with previous years, this is super-concentrated: amazing that so much flavour can be packed into a glass. Astoundingly powerful fruit, matched by the seamless integration of oak and structure. The tannins are fine, almost subliminal, and hold the fruit in check from start to finish. The natural acidity from both the cooler growing area and vintage is impressively juicy, wrapping up a sensational package. Supple, generous, layered and lingering. What a wine".
