Platter * * * * – Model Stellenbosch cabernet, arms more open than flagship above. 2009 dusty edge to clean blackcurrant flavour, touch of herbs, hint of mint, substantial alc (15%) evident in lush finish.
Made to exude absolute purity of varietal character and as such displays true Cabernet Sauvignon cassis and blackcurrant flavours. The wine has a fresh, minty herbaceousness backed by mocca vanilla oak. Firm structured tannins and a long finish on the palate show good aging potential. Made with more than a nod to the classic wines of the Medoc in the Bordeaux region, showing the period of time David Finlayson spent working at world renowned Chateau Margaux.
