Formby & Adams

2010 Cutting Edge Cabernet Shiraz

Deep magenta in colour. Attractive blackberry bush and dark fruit aromas with a hint of spice box and sandalwood. The palate is generous and unctuous. Abundant flavours of blackberries and spice. Fine tannins help top create a lingering, almost chewy finish.  The Formby & Adams label reflects the Cabernet Dimension of Brothers in Arms. In 1891 William Formby was among those innovative souls who pioneered viticulture the family's grape growing traditions, consistently on the "cutting edge" through a mix of traditional and modern vineyard management and winemaking practices that enable him to produce the best possible wines from this famous vineyard.
