Heartland Spice Trader Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

As I sit in a suburban setting in one of Brisbane’s inner suburbs, a  cool and somewhat damp day, there’s just something about this wine that allows the imbiber to perhaps be transported elsewhere. 

Upon opening, the wine with earthen notes, topped with dark fruit and a smattering of mint for freshness remind of a walk through an evergreen plantation.

The palate, even at five years, still possesses a freshness and vitality to it, bolstering the mood, lifting the spirits and providing a comely sensation across a spice tinged finish. 89
