The 2009 Gigglepot Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from mostly McLaren Vale fruit with about 12% coming from Langhorne Creek. It was aged in 80% American oak and 20% French, 53% new. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it reveals an incredibly intense nose of both crushed fresh black currant and creme de cassis with underlying mint, dark chocolate, cassia and allspice aromas. Full-bodied and juicy fruited, there’s a nice harmony of structure and flesh on the palate with refreshing acid and medium-firm finely grained tannins. It finishes long and spicy. (LPB)
Fruit driven and very approachable, the 2009 Mollydooker Cabernet Sauvignon Gigglepot is 100% Cabernet that’s sourced mainly from McLaren Vale, with a portion from Langhorne Creek. Aged in 80% American oak and 20% French oak, with 80% being new, the wine has crisp black currant, mint, dark chocolate, and vanilla aromas on the nose, showing beautiful purity as well as perfume. This is followed by a full bodied, round, supple, and textured wine that has good freshness to the fruit, a concentrated mid-palate, and a lengthy finish. I like it now, but it will be interesting to see how this evolves over a year or two; at the very least, it should provide lots of pleasure over the coming decade. (JebDunnuck.com)
Firm and fleshy, offering a juicy mouthful of ripe currant and cherry fruit. Gains welcome complexity, with hints of eucalyptus and bay leaf as the finish extends nicely. Neither the fruit nor savory notes prevail, creating a good tension. (HS)
