After a winter of our Cabernet being snapped up into restaurants all over town, we've finally hit the broadsheets with its first press review in today's (21st July 2009) Epicure section of The Age.
We're rapt with the review by Ralph Kyte-Powell, albeit they put the wrong bottle shot (!) next to it!
For those of you sticklers who want to see the REAL BOTTLE here 'tis...
Mitchell Harris Pyrenees Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 $20-$22
Made using organically grown grapes from Victoria's Pyrenees, the experience of John Harris in Victorian wineries shows. Blackcurrant, mulberry, dark chocolate and light minty aromas. The medium-bodied palate has silky texture, subtle savoury flavour and fine-grained tannins.
(13.5 per cent alcohol; screw cap)
Ageing? Drink over four years.
Food ideas Lamb cutlets; Vietnamese mint-wrapped beef.
Stockists include King & Godfree, Carlton; Decanters by the Bay, Port Melbourne
4.5 Stars, $$$
Not bad really, eh? Could probably go some of that Vietnamese mint-wrapped beef tonight actually...
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is disappearing pretty quickly now, but you can still pick some up at our retailers, or join or mailing list for special prices on the entire MH range. Drop us an email here.
