Bright mid to deep ruby. An attractive scented Cabernet style with lifted violets, leaf and cassis fruit. Light weight and elegant with pretty fruits and slightly firm tannins plus a long lingering finish. Nice effort. 91/100.
Deep red/purple colour, with a mulberry and crushed leaf bouquet which is fresh, youthful and fairly primary. Rose petal and raspberry, too. The palate is also admirably fruit-driven, clean and fresh, with good texture and flow, refined structure and good persistence. There is only the barest trace of mint, and the fruit does all the talking - oak is barely noticeable. Fine wine.

Family owned and run Shaw Vineyard Estate in cool climate Murrumbateman 30kms north of Canberra, have released a great drop for winter-time enjoyment in their 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon. Developed on a one-time wool growing property, Shaw have put much effort into diligent pruning to keep yields to around eight tonnes of fruit to the hectare, and this coupled with 2013 being an excellent ripening year, has resulted in the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon proving a stand-out wine.
With rich dark fruit flavours showing nice touches of mint, this is one for the table with a hearty winter-time braised or roasted beef or lamb, accompanying vegies and a nice sprinkling of aromatic herbs.
Machine-picked at night, open-fermented, matured in French oak for 22 months. Silver medal Vienna International Wine challenge 15. A well made, medium to full-bodied cabernet with varietal fruit, tannins and oak all in balance. 89 Points.
