Moppity Vineyards Crafted Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

The Moppity 'Crafted' are crafted from specific blocks or rows of fruit that exhibit certain characteristics. This 2017 from the vineyards block 2, and identified for "an ideal juice to tannin ratio which we knew would result in a wine with great structure and generous varietal flavour".

A subtle example of Cabernet Sauvignon on initial presentation, a soapiness. Being light, lithe, possessing a suppleness - stonefruit strangely - then veering towards cassis. Fine, nigh powdery, tannin - barely there - ethereal - quite unusual for Cabernet Sauvignon.

Fine structure, something else; Franc like prettiness, Merlot like fine structure. 93
