The 2016 ‘The Lark’ is absolutely magnificent and is as good as it gets in this fabulous vintage. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the bale loam soils in Larkmead’s vineyards. Displaying an incredibly inviting and expressive character, this opens to stunning aromas of ripe blackberries, dark currants, tobacco, soil, espresso, spring florals and hints of dark chocolate all bursting from the glass. This full-bodied Cabernet is beautifully structured with gorgeous round polished tannins that give way to an expansive mouthfeel that gracefully envelops the palate. Typical of all Larkmead’s wines from this vintage, this retains wonderful freshness, balance and striking purity from start to finish. Concentrated, focused and remarkably precise, the team at Larkmead has crafted a simply flawless wine in this vintage, which is nothing short of utterly brilliant now and will also have an incredibly long evolution ahead.
