Glen Carlou 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum

 

The Glen Carlou Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is a bold example of this noble variety, showing layers of ripe blackcurrant cassis, red berry and bell pepper undertones, with hints of cedar and tobacco spice. A well balanced wine with copious amounts of fruit, a smooth and complex finish, which wonderfully pairs with grilled red meats and rich tomato based dishes.

Winemaker’s Note

We will remember the 2015 season as one of the driest and earliest in years, with a somewhat smaller wine grape harvest, promising exceptional wines. Grape analyses were good, with low pH and good acidity and sugar levels, which form the foundation for high quality wines. This Cabernet is decadent and rich with the perfect balance of fruit, tannin and body.

Food Pairing & Recipes

Ox tongue with gremolata, pecorino and caper raisin puree or soy braised pork neck with onion apple veloute, baba ganoush and grilled leeks or Moroccan lamb shoulder.
