Palandri is pleased to announce the release of the 2005 Palandri Vita Novus Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon, following in the footsteps of the successful 2004 vintage.
The Palandri Vita Novus collection has been extremely well received. These stylishly packaged wines, high in quality and exceptional in their value for money, make the Vita Novus collection a reward for any of life’s cellarbrations.
The 2005 Palandri Vita Novus Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception. With a concentrated deep purple colouring, the wine features aromas of dark berries and mint, underpinned by a hint of blackcurrant. The palate exhibits fruits of the forest and spice with the underlying flavours of berries and mint. This powerful wine, with rich fruit flavours and great palate length, is best enjoyed with full flavored foods such as lamb and beef, making it an ideal accompaniment to a roast meal.
Senior Winemaker Ben Roodhouse describes the 2005 vintage in Margaret River as “outstanding”, explaining that the red wine quality was a result of a very good season. Roodhouse continues, “The Cabernet in particular displays generous colours and soft sweet fruit characters, with ripe varietal flavours. The Cabernet Sauvignon was unusually advanced for much of the growing season resulting in the production of sound, well balanced wines.”
The Palandri Vita Novus collection, which was released in July 2007, features three varietals from the Margaret River and Great Southern regions; the 2004 Margaret River Chardonnay, 2004 Great Southern Shiraz and the new release 2005 Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon. This highly successful range has received numerous accolades at both Australian and International competitions. The Palandri Vita Novus collection, which retails between $22–25, showcases Palandri’s dedication to the production of high quality, accessible wines that represent excellent value for money.
