Lavina Grand Royale 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon
The Grand Royale Cabernet Sauvignon is deep red-noir in colour, with an opulent, powerful bouquet of ripe black cherries and currants, freshly cut mint, violets and lavender with lingering hints of cedar box and eucalypt. The palate is elegant and poised with intense mouth-filling flavours of blackcurrants, mulberry, black olive and new leather. There is tremendous depth of flavour that resonates through with a luscious silky texture and subtle fine tannins. The voluptuous structure is beautifully balanced with natural berry acid and savoury undertones of new and seasoned French oak that linger with the complexity of purple fruits to a seamless finish. Drinking beautifully now, the intense structure and depth will ensure the wine will continue to develop and mature gaining complexity for the next 20 years.
