d'Arenberg The High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon 2011


SKU 36128


Cooler years in McLaren Vale always lead to incredibly expressive and highly varietal Cabernets. The High Trellis is no exception with an abundance of black currant, violets and minty notes leaping from the glass. Beautiful bright purple fruits dominate the palate, countered by typical Cabernet characters such as red capsicum skin and fresh mint. The wine feels quite linear at this stage of its development and the combination of fruit and fine chalky tannins seems to go on and on endlessly. A wine that can be savoured now or allowed to develop for the next five to 10 years.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple in color, the 2011 High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon gives notes of creme de cassis, cedar, toast and dark chocolate with a whiff of eucalyptus. Medium to full-bodied, the ample fruit is well-structured by medium to firm grainy tannins and vibrant acid. It finishes long and just a little herbal. Drink it now to 2018+.
