Carlton is a charming village and is highly recommended if you’re looking for a long weekend escape with seriously excellent dining and drinking choices – all located on a two block stretch of the main drag.
We took a bottle of this home and enjoyed it with west coast salmon, wild rice and heirloom tomatoes with basil.
On the eyes, it’s a translucent garnet. The nose shows tart pomegranate, strawberry, red cherry and moss with vanilla bean, and the palate is dry with mouth-watering acidity, strained tannins and flavours of more green strawberry with cherry, fern, light anise and fennel.
WSET Very Good – deliciously elegant – enough to make me want to return to get more and visit Carlton for a third time…
