Complex inviting nose consisting of mint, blackcurrants, blueberries and mocha. A touch medicinal. Full bodied and intense palate with maraschino cherries and more mocha and black fruits. Expertly well balance with powdery fine tannins and a long finish. Bordeaux like but from a warmer year.. 30th anniversary of this label.
Henschke Abbotts Prayer Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, Adelaide Hills, SA
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
