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.
"From a single vineyard at Springton at 390m, crushed, wild yeast open-fermented, matured in French hogsheads (20% new) for 12 months. This has all the trademarks of high quality cabernet: an impressive black-fruited and cedary bouquet, followed by a medium-bodied palate building on the framework of the bouquet with layers of blackcurrant, bay leaf, firm tannins and subtle cedar/cigar box oak."
