Killerby – 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon

By on January 30, 2017 in Cabernet Sauvignon with 0 Comments

Way back in July 2016 I bought a dozen red wine on impulse at the Brisbane Air port though Wine Selectors, read the first review here on the 2014 Tahbilk Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre.  This bottle of 2012 Killerby Cabernet Sauvignon from the Margaret river was one of those 12.

As a self professed lover of Australian Red, pretty much anything is going to be a winner for me.  Killerby is a family-owned Margaret River producer that focuses on small batch wine making techniques, resulting in wines of great concentration like this 2012 Cabernet.

I loved it, a very smooth and well rounded cab sav.

From The Bottle

Constant sunshine has ensured a full ripening period resulting in a wine with intensity and finesse.  The nose is inviting and loaded with Christmas cake, clove and nutmeg spices.  The palate is focused and generous showing an abundance of berries, black currant and a touch of herbs.  The delicate tannings let the varietal characters shine with a fresh not of acidity on the finish.  Enjoy now of cellar carefully up to five years.
