2018 Gartelmann Jonathon Cabernet
This wine has been named after Jorg Gartelmann’s grandson Jonathan.
Nose: Some leafiness, chocolate, smoky ripe blackberries, a touch of aniseed, violets, a vague hint of lanolin and menthol. This elixir has the lot. Colour: Deep maroon reddish pink. Chewy tannins, sturdy acid, and more berries. Mellows, deepens and gets richer after opening.
Slow braised beef ribs, venison, kangaroo and mature cheeses.
Drink from 2021, better from 2023, or cellar until 2028+.
