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.

Machine-harvested, crushed and destemmed, fermented in a mix of open and closed fermenters, 5-10 days on skins, matured for 36 months in French (56% new) and used American oak. Obviously, oak leaves a footprint on the wine, but there is a wealth of blackcurrant/cassis, bay leaf and spice to provide balance to a warm hearted, generous wine that can be enjoyed now or in 20+ years. A enduring part of the Coonawarra landscape since its first vintage in '91.96 points - James Halliday's Wine Companion
