salitage pemberton 2005 scores 94 points from halliday

Salitage┬áCabernet 2005 from leading WA winery scored 94 points from influential wine writer James Halliday in his recently released Australian Wine Companion – the definitive guide to wine in this country.

He writes: Bright colour; elegant, light-bodied style with Bordeaux overtones; it is deceptive, for the sweet red berry fruits are not immediately obvious, but come up on retasting; the tannins are gossamer fine, the finish long. Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Petit Verdot/Cabernet. 94 points James Halliday.”

2005 was a great vintage in Pemberton
