Yep. I’m a bit of a Winosaur.
A massive thank you to Georgie Orbach Wines for gifting us this sample bottle of her 2017 Riverina Cab Sav. I’ve actually had this for a couple of years now as some family friends were looking after it in their cellar for us and we’ve only just raided their cellar to claim our stash of wines back.
Georgie’s wines are made for drinking now, not necessarily storing. However saying that, this one went down beautifully! We’d had a long Monday and had just been given some fresh homemade bread, so we ended up eating bread and butter with it. It was heaven. Yes my young friends, this is what life’s like in your mid-30s.
In the glass it’s a plum red colour. Notes of black and red currants, baked plums and spice with a hint of savouriness come through on the nose. While in the mouth it’s smooth, easy drinking, juicy and moreish. The bottle was gone so quickly, that we probably would have cracked a 2nd bottle if it wasn’t a school night.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
