Brown Brothers 1889 Cabernet Sauvignon (King Valley) (2016)
The 2016 Cabernet’s depth of colour and intensity of flavour show tremendous concentration and it will cellar for up to seven years from vintage.

It would make a perfect partner to rare herb encrusted eye fillet of beef with roasted vegetables, or with an aged cheddar or parmesan cheese at the end of the meal.
