The Watkins Cellar Reserve range takes this special 2016 Currency Creek Cabernet Sauvignon and gives it extended maturation in the winery and completing oak to produce an exceptional wine that is at its best to drink now or within three years.
The intense ruby colour is maturing to a rich garnet. The beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon flavours have begun developing from mint through to berry and forest floor characters, underlaid by a touch of rich cigar box notes.
The mid palate has remained firm through maturation to produce a rich, generous wine that lingers for a long finish. The powerful Cabernet Sauvignon tannins have been barely tamed into approachability, presenting a well-structured wine.
