Rickety Bridge Paulinas Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Rickety Bridge Paulinas Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Classic characters of red cherries layered with herbal notes and oak spice. A full, rich palate with a powerful fruit expression and silky, polished tannins which lead to a long finish with well integrated oak, cassis and subtle minerality. This wine is a pleasure to drink from the first sip until the last.

Rack of lamb, chargrilled sirloin or ribeye, roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, slow-cooked oxtail or braised venison.
