McWilliams Barwang Hilltops Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
This is a wine that is far too often over looked for something cheap from SA. The McWilliams Barwang Hilltops Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 is one of the best cheap wines you will find this and for that matter any year.
Quite bright in colour, with a real purple hue, the nose of this wine is jam packed with blueberries and herbs such as bay leaf and oregano wafting up tea from the billy in the bush – very bloody Aussie! This is a wine that certainly needs decanting; dark chocolate and licorice comes out towards the end with tight furry tannins driving this wine all the way to the bottom of the glass.
