Mitchell Harris Wines Pyrenees Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

This is "two from two" in terms of the quality of Mitchell Harris Wines' new red releases (see my review of their shiraz here).  Cabernet sauvignon is suited, I think, to the Pyrenees and this is a very good example of why.  From the Peerick vineyard in the Moonambel hills, the wine is matured for 18 months in 20% new French oak.  It has aromatics of spearmint, mint slice, blackcurrant and eucalyptus.  The palate has good length on the finish with an appealing structure and balance.  A big tick from me.
