Gigglepot is a vibrant & elegant wine, full of personality. Forthright flavors of raspberry, briar and dried herbs develop into soft layers of mocha and mint on the palate. The nose has cherry & rhubarb notes with a hint of vanilla, complimented by delicate oak elements of toasted coconut and spice. The balance and intensity of the Gigglepot allows the true personality of McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon to shine.
Wine Advocate 91 - The full-bodied 2017 Gigglepot Cabernet Sauvignon is the winery's top Cabernet. It's supple and silky on the palate, marked by notes of cedar and mocha, cassis and mint. It's a big mouthful of ripe, dark flavors, wrapped in a plush coating of super-soft tannins that conceal the wine's considerable alcohol (labeled at 15.5% alcohol).
