The Red from Mountadam Vineyards
The Wine Review:
Pours out of the bottle with a deep red colour. It has a pleasant fruity Cabernet nose and hints of French oak (present but not overdone). The aroma pulls you in telling you to give it a taste. The taste itself gives a medium-bodied mouth feel with smooth integrated tannins. There are dark fruit flavours and a little capsicum, pepper and slightly earthy. A great value buy.
