A ship called the Ringbolt sunk off the southwest coast of Australia in the late 19th century in what is now called Ringbolt Bay. It carried barrels of cement, thank goodness, nothing as enticing as this wine. The region’s cool climate keeps the wine’s fruit in check, allowing this cab’s savoury essence to come through. Cedar, tobacco and black olive all enter the mix. It’s like eating tapenade and smoking a cigar on a freshly built dock – jutting out into Ringbolt Bay. Try it with steak.
