Hester Creek Terra Unica Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSourced from the winery's estate vineyard on the Golden Mile Bench, this wine is exclusively available to wine club members. The deep purple colour hints at a big, fully extracted cabernet sauvignon. A dense nose with no shortage of chocolatey oak and dark fruits, the palate is medium-full bodied with firm, woody tannins, and fresh, integrated acidity. Everything is in the right place, but just lacking some complexity and elegance. It will be interesting to watch this evolve over the next 3-5 years, as there is potential to improve with bottle age. Only 250 cases produced.Tasted: 21 July 2019Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 28.99 Bench Club Members only Producer: Hester Creek Estate WineryDistributors: Revelry Import Company
