Cabernet Sauvignon’s spiritual home, and perhaps its true origin, is in Bordeaux, where it tends to be blended with other varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Australian Cab Savs are commonly made as single varietal wines, with Coonawarra and Margaret River heading most wine lovers’ lists of Cabernet regions.
Bright aromas of blueberry and cassis on the nose. The palate is richly layered with ripe black fruit interwoven with spice. Fine tannins and oak characters from 20 months spent in French and American oak adds structure, depth and length on the finish.

Bright aromas of dark fruits, chocolate and mint continue onto the palate. Full-bodied with firm tannins and well-integrated oak from time in French and American oak. Juicy, well-structured and loaded with flavour this wine is a great bargain.

Classic textbook Cabernet character - Cassis, touch of green pepper, tobacco/cigar box notes. The savoury palate is balanced and concentrated, with good structure and length. Recommended.

"Deep, healthy colour, still with crimson on the rim. The particularly complex vinification was conceived and implemented without a hitch. 47% cabernet sauvignon, 43% shiraz and 10% merlot from three different vineyards with different canopy management and site aspects, different soils, the varieties handled separately and fermented with different procedures. Oak choice and use varied significantly, the sumptuous, black-fruited blend finalised after 20+ months maturation in barrel, then matured for a further 30 months in bottle prior to release. A very special wine" Halliday Wine Companion
