About the wine

Sam's intense, deep crimson nectar is exactly what a fine wine should taste like
  • My Gentle Annie Cabernet 2015 uses the same vineyard and winemaking style as my Metayage 2012. That said, the 2015 fruit was a little more juicy and sweet, which made for a slightly richer more open wine with serious drinking appeal.
  • A rich, velvety delicious drop now, this wine will be build in refined savoury complexity over time… so if you have a secret hidy hole, it's the sort of wine you could stash for a while and come back to.
  • A heartfelt thank you to Naked Fine Wine Bondholders and Angels for your support, and for supporting NW in general. I hope you enjoy it! 

Sam, Winemaker

      Best before
      Drink now to 2027. The wine is well balanced and can be enjoyed now as a fresh youngster. But this is one of those wines which will have another life as a more savoury complex mature wine with say 5 years bottle age.

      Serving advice
      Serve at 16-18°C. Open/Decant 1+ hours before serving

      Food match
      This is a pretty versatile red, and would go well with a wide range of red meats, and hard cheese. To pick just one dish, I'd go for roast lamb. The protein in the meat will make the tannin feel softer. And along with the blackcurrant primary aroma is a slight herbal note typical of Cabernet, and this will be a complementary flavour like the sprig of rosemary Mum sometimes puts with roast lamb. Delicious!

      Meet the winemaker - Sam Plunkett

      • Legend is a word we sometimes overuse, but in Sam's case, it's true. Over in Oz he’s regarded as one of their greatest living winemakers. Getting on for a thousand medals and trophies to his name, including the daddy of them all – the Best Shiraz in Australia Trophy at the 2010 Great Australian Shiraz Challenge.
      • Yet if you met him, you’d probably mistake him for the gardener. He’s one of the most down-to-earth, approachable blokes you’ll ever meet. He wears a beat-up old hat and drives a beat-up old pick up, and when he’s not in the vineyard, you’re likely to find him up a ladder with a wrench in his hand.
      • From being in a pretty sticky situation back in 2011 when he was unexpectedly bought-out by his business partner, Sam has just achieved his lifetime dream; he’s converted an old textile factory into his very own gleaming high-tech winery and it’s all thanks to Angel funding!
