d'Arenberg The Galvo Garage 2014

A wine I always look forward to on release. In part for its representation of an Aussie dream (for, which home owner doesn't want a 'Galvo' shed) and also its nod, deferential or otherwise, to the 'garagistes' - those artisan French winemakers, churning out their small batches in their 'sheds'. 

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (54%), PV (23%), and Merlot (23%). From the off it doesn't disappoint, it's varietal composition rings true, and even for a 5yo the freshness and vitality of fruit is still present.

Black fruit, subtle savoury twists, fine tannins. It gives the impression that it's been released just to start hitting its stride about now. On a good length. An excellent example of a release strategy. 92
