Vinaceous Raconteur Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
The 2015 Raconteur is sourced from mature vines located in Wilyabrup, Margaret River; these old vines are handharvested and made using traditional techniques by Vinaceous winemakers. The wine is matured in oak and selected by Vinaceous winemakers Mike Kerrigan and Nick Stacy for finishing, fining, blending and bottling by Vinaceous. The Raconteur typifies classic Margaret River cabernet; lush, rich and deep purple in colour with bright hues, the aroma leaps from the glass with violets and black berry and mocha notes.
Not unlike a Rorschach Image, people will see different flavours across the palate; some will find ripe fleshy black currants and cassis, others will find crunchy sour cherries; but both complement the overall palate with intensity, weight, structure and texture. Along with lip-smacking tannins and fine oak nuances, the 2015 Raconteur can easily be enjoyed on immediate opening or be cellared for up to 10 years and is absolutely a must with roast lamb, chargrilled rib-eye and/or array of cheeses; whatever your choice, the Raconteur will always entertain and command attention!
