94 Points & Top Wine of the Year Under $20 Tyson Stelzer
The value is absurdly good.” – 93 Points Campbell Mattinson
Don’t let the price-tag fool you… this is one of the best value wines out there, and it pains us to reveal this secret little gem.
We just keep seeing Mike Press wines continually rate highly amongst Australia’s critics’ and all for the cost of a short five minute cab or Uber ride.
The wine has matured for 16 months in French Oak hogsheads, The ideal vintage of 2014 for our red wines continues in this cabernet sauvignon. A combination of 17 year old vines and a good vintage has resulted in a wine full of flavour.
“From vines now 18 years of age in an idyllic season, matured for 16 months in French oak hogsheads, this is a wine that sings its varietal credentials in signature blackcurrant, cedar, green bean, leaf and dark chocolate. It’s tightly coiled for the long-haul, confidently laid out on a solid platform of finely-formed tannins. It has all the ingredients for greatness and, as always, begs only for time.” – 94 Points & Top Wine Under of the Year Under $20 Tyson Stelzer
“You won’t find a better value cabernet sauvignon any time soon. In Australia or anywhere else, you’d reckon. This is licked with creamy/resiny oak but thoroughly backed by blackcurrant and mulberry-like fruit. It carries striations of dry herbs; it’s cabernet, and it feels proud of it. Tannin has a sense of authority to it. This is as good as any Mike Press cabernet yet released. If you’re not already, get on board. The value is absurdly good.” – 93 Points Campbell Mattinson
