2012 Tom Price Cabernet Sauvignon
Complex aromas of earthy, berry fruit with hints of dark chocolate and cedar.
The palate displays sweet dark and red berry fruit with earthy gravelly notes and hints of dark chocolate and cedar. The wine is rich and complex with great length and balance, supported by fine-grained layered tannins and seamlessly integrated French oak.
The wine's medium-bodied purity and finesse needs to be balanced by perfectly cooked medium-rare beef or lamb, with roasted or char-grilled vegetables.
Cellar Potential20 years +Winemaking NotesThe perfect ripening conditions experienced during the 2012 vintage has produced a rich and concentrated wine displaying purity and elegance. This wine is a selection of the very best barrels from our North Block 12 and Old Block V9 which formed part of the original 1978 plantings. Tom Price wines are the pinnacle of our viticulture and winemaking, and this wine displays great purity of fruit, texture, complexity and fine structure. It will develop additional complexity with careful cellaring over the next 20 years.
