Top 100 – Matthew Jukes 100 Best Australian Wines 2010

Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

With almost cartoonish Cabernet flavours, and a depth of fruit akin to the shagpile in Scooby Doo’s Mystery Machine, this joyful Cabernet reverberates with boundless enthusiasm on the palate.  Joch grows some of the purest and most luscious Cabernet fruit in the Vale and it is these astounding raw materials that ensure that his wines have immense integrity and appeal.  Cinnamon sticks, soft black liquorice, mint leaves and espresso cream are all to be found swirling in this vortex of cassis juice.
