Joshua Cooper Shays Flat Cabernet Sauvignon 2022

Where - Pyrenees, Central Victoria
What - Cabernet Sauvignon
Body - Medium
Style - Contemplate

From the cooler 2022 vintage Josh Cooper has once again proven himself to be one of the most exciting winemakers on the scene. With a suite of wines from old vineyards around Macedon and further North West to the Pyrenees and Bendigo, these are carefully crafted wines, from historic vineyard, it's easy to see why he was shortlisted for best new winery in the upcoming 2024 Halliday Wine Companion. 

With some aeration shows intense sour cherry and cassis, mulberry, lavender and black olive with a sweet mint top note and alluring graphite and terracotta complexity. A compact and powerful palate opens with time to reveal layers of deep dark berry and red cherry fruit, before a rumble of fine layered tannin and cleansing cherry pit acidity.
