Shaw Vineyard Estate 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon - Canberra

DILIGENT pruning paid off with this drop that's
perfect with wintertime beef or lamb roasts.
ONE TO NOTE:  FAMILY owned and run Shaw Vineyard Estate in cool climate Murrumbateman 30km north of Canberra, have released a great drop for winter-time enjoyment in their 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon.

Developed on a one-time fine wool growing property, Shaw have put much effort into diligent pruning to keep yields to around eight tonnes of fruit to the hectare, and this coupled with 2013 being an excellent ripening year, has resulted in the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon proving a stand-out wine.

With rich dark fruit flavours showing nice touches of mint, and at $25 a bottle, this is one for the table with hearty winter-time braised or roasted beef or lamb, accompanying vegies and a nice sprinkling of aromatic herbs.
