“A cooler vintage than normal has produced an elegant, softer style of Gralyn Cabernet. Medium bodied, deep crimson, with a complex bouquet of black fruits, chocolate, violets and cedar. The palate is perfectly balanced and layered with cassis, blackcurrant and chocolate. Fine supple tannins give texture and support a long, persistent finish.”
Winemaker, Gralyn Estate, August 2009.
“This is one of the lighter Gralyn Cabernets, though there is still plenty of structure and intensity in there. Fragrant tobacco leaf, violet and cedar on the nose. The palate is pure elegance with its fine powdery tannins and fine grained cedary oak supporting a medium bodied structure. There’s fruit sweetness with the finish dry and long.”
