The Raconteur ‘breaks the mold' for Barossa Cabernet; lush, rich and deep purple in colour with bright hues, the aroma leaps from the glass with violets and black berry and mocha notes. Not unlike a Rorschach Image, people will see different flavours across the palate; some will find ripe fleshy black currants and cassis, others will find crunchy sour cherries; but both complement the overall palate with intensity, weight, structure and texture. Along with lip-smacking tannins and fine oak nuances, the 2009 Raconteur can easily be enjoyed on immediate opening or be cellared for up to 10 years and is absolutely a must with roast lamb, char-grilled rib-eye and/or array of cheeses; whatever your choice, the Raconteur will always entertain and command attention!
A truly weird interstate collaboration by Elena Brooks (Dandelion Wines) in SA who sourced and made the wine and Mike Kerrigan (West Cape Howe) in Mount Barker who put the final touches on. A lot of logistical effort for 800 dozen bottles at $25 each, but remember gift horses, and the wine does have attractive cassis-accented cabernet fruit; good structure.
