Patina 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon
Orange NSW | 13.2 per cent alcohol | $30
More than shiraz, most cabernet sauvignon needs some bottle age to become approachable and drink really well.
So it’s great to taste this near-nine-year-old current release from Gerald Naef’s vineyard just a few kilometres south-east of Orange.
The tannins have softened and the wine goes perfectly with pink roast lamb.
