2015 Anubis Cabernet Sauvignon

$75.00

TASTING NOTE

Taken from a single vineyard on the Barossa floor, Barossa. Grown on ancient Biscay soil with excellent fertility. The wine has an intense brick red colour with a bouquet of red currant and dark cherry fruit with mulberry notes.

The wine has been crafted to enhance the rich, dark cherry and cassis fruit, with 40% new French oak, resulting in plush and juicy flavours with an elegant, soft, velvety tannin finish. Extended aging in the bottle before release integrates the unique characters of this premium Cabernet over time.

The result is a complex wine that is also Vegan friendly.

STORY

Anubis is a reverent tribute to the Cabernet Sauvignon variety, which has rested humbly within Barossa Valley’s wine growing history for many generations.  Single vineyard, personally selected fruit from dedicated Barossa growers creates a wine which is a true testament to this noble variety. 

ANUBIS: Egyptian God of the dead represented as a man with a greyhound dog’s head. Depicted as a protector of graves, his role was to usher souls of the dead safely into the afterlife. Tutankhamen and Cleopatra’s many greyhounds were entombed and sometimes mummified with their owners to protect them on their way into royalty afterlife.

REVIEWS

Chunky Cabernet with ripe blueberry fruitiness, some mulberry and cassis, a sniff of fresh turned earth and a good seasoning of clove and mahogany wood. There are rivulets of grippy tannin, but the general feel is of plushness and opulence with choc-berry licks to finish. Deep, brooding style managed with class.Mike Bennie, WBM Magazine - 94 points

This wine has an intense nose, with an expressive palate of jam fruit, chocolate, liquorice and oak with a light layer of earth and cigar box. A well-balanced wine with ripe tannins and a long, savoury finish. This internationally recognised masterpiece is an elegant drop with majestic soul.The Good Wine Club
