Wine Entry : Tyrrell's Wines Moore's Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 (SE Australia)

-
-
Very pleasant bottle of wine to drink, had it with cheese and crackers and they go wonderfully together. I purchased this from my Swimming Club wine section costing S$39. In the glass the wine is of a deep dark garnet colour.

Smell : Fruity with blackcurrents and raspberry. Hint of spice and coffee.

Taste : The wine hits you first with a full bodied taste, bursting with fruit. It then mellows with oak/dark chocolate at the end. Mild tannins and relatively well-balanced.

After-taste : A smooth finish with spice and slight oak. A hint of alcohol warmth.

Description at back of bottle : Tyrrell’s was established in 1858 in the Hunter Valley and today the company remains wholly Australian Family owned. The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit for this wine was sourced from premium vineyards within South Eastern Australia. After fermentation, the wine matured in a combination of American and French oak barrels. This wine was fined with egg whites, a natural product, traditionally used. Black cherries and wild berry fruit characters dominate the nose with intense varietals characters on the palate. The result is a flavour packed wine with subtle structured tannin on the finish. This wine is ready for immediate drinking. A full-bodied red, that will make it an ideal accompaniment to casseroles, cheeses or by itself.

    Well I have not tried the vintage 2003, there could be some difference in the quality as my club usually only marks it up by 10% from the stores outside.
    Let me get a bottle and let you know! cheers! hic!
