Product Description

"The Wit & Shanker is Rolf and Noel's "tribute" wine and is only made in the best Cabernet vintages, this being no exception. From the spectacular 2010 vintage, most of its life has been spent in almost entirely new French oak barrels before being unleashed upon us. Picked early to retain freshness and natural acidity it weighs in at a very moderate 13.5% alcohol but is no shrinking violet.......in fact violets, black currents, cardamon, cinnamon and cassis leap from the glass along with a gentle hint of eucalyptus. Rich and juicy it is chockablock full of flavour and varietal character with sultry soft tannins to finish. Dangerously good?" Winemaker's Note

REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Magpie Estate The Wit and Shanker Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
"Deep inky soft red colour. Attractive Cabernet nose of old red rose, blackberry, dark exotic spices and earth. Nice level of complexity vs primary fruit already. Medium-full. Rich sweet blackberry and cassis blended with creamy spicy oak and backed by juicy blackcurrant acidity. Typically generous and shows a slight tarriness from the warmth of the vintage.
