The 2017 Gandona Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a sensational wine from Manuel Pires and team Melka. This beautifully made Cabernet slowly begins to unwind in the glass releasing stunning aromatics of black cherries and black raspberries which are laced with nuances of fresh loam, florals, tobacco, charcoal and hints of spices all develop beautifully. The palate is medium to full, with wonderful energy incredible overall structure and balance. It shows wonderful class as it effortlessly continues to build leading up to the long polished finish. This is another a simply remarkable wine from the vintage.
