Tom Cullity 2019

98 Points | GOLD RATED

“Trepidation over tasting a flagship wine so young lasted a nanosecond before turning to “oh my, this is awesome”. In this seductive youthful stage, it’s fragrant with florals from violets to lavender, blueberries and bramble all wonderfully savoury with lots of warming spices. The palate offers charm, detail and excellent structure with velveteen tannins and a fine acid line to a long, long finish.”

“Excellent fruit and second-to-none level of detail. This is an evocative wine. Funky sulphides rockin’ it while a gossamer thread of acidity holds everything in line – the citrus flavours, the texture, the wine totally enveloping the oak and, while it’s a powerhouse of flavour, there’s a purity to this. It’s such a contrast. How does it achieve that?”

“A marker of great Cabernet is being seduced by the aromas and flavours, which need to be in harmony and lets not forget beautiful tannins matched to fine acidity. Does this fall into that class? Too right it does. Varietal flavours are pitch-perfect and not quite understated, this is a cabernet after all, and the result is a certain elegance and class. A gorgeous rendition.”

“A tight, linear style with all manner of lemon and grapefruit flavours awash with tangy acidity. Lemon thyme pops up, a smidge of texture for good measure, and it builds with some white nectarine, a sprinkle of spice and oak judiciously integrated. This has precision and the right amount of complexity, so it’s moreish and ultimately very satisfying.”
