The Bethlehem Block is located in the heart of the Barossa, and this Cabernet is grown by vigneron Trevor Liebich.
Only 2,452 dozen produced.
A perfect Cabernet entry. Alert bright fruit. Direct, full and fine and precise Cabernet softness. Rich mouth filling soft fruit, especially cedar and cassis. Juicy round blackberry sweetness, and red currant tartness tempered with some taut but typical Cabernet tannin. Wonderful cigar box and supple fruit flavour but properly taught tannin. Intense and complex but with a lightness of red berry flavours, which is surprising for such a full-on wine. This wine hangs about after you have tasted it for so long it seems almost self defeating, although you want another sip it is still in the mouth. Precise line and length that lingers on and on with cassis. Juicy, interesting and complex but with the fruit fullness of youth. Minutes later, the flavour still lingers.
