I was feeling like something a little different on one of the recent cold blustery nights so I reached for the Stompers Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia. Made by Nugan Estate, a large family run winery in sunny New South Wales. I was hoping this big Cab Sauv would warm me up and it did not disappoint!
This wine is dark crimson in the glass I could tell even before tasting it that it was going to be big and warming. The nose showed notes of dark cherry cola, wine gums and smoky vanilla oak. The palate is full of dark fruit; blackberries, plums and black cherries. The vanilla from the nose is there but not in a fake sweet way more like a vanilla bean. The wine is full bodied with a little tannin grip on the finish, a perfect warming hug on a cold night. I didn’t have it with food but it would go well with a burger, lamb sausages or some hard cheese.Read more about Kathryn
