Australian Wine Companion – Serengale Vineyard Beechworth Cabernet Merlot

Reviewed by Ned Goodwin, published 01 August 2019

Score: 92/100 (Silver)

This pushes the verdant line of cabernet’s envelope, with spearmint, alpine forest, bitter chocolate and beef bouillon lofting over a piercing soprano of cassis and graphite. One soon becomes accustomed to the feel, with a lithe, detailed tannic line making for textural intrigue. The oak, nicely nestled into the fold. Mid-weighted, highly savoury and very long. Just a bit garden green and piney.
