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 cherry red in colour with a fruit forward nose. On the palate rich flavours of raspberry, blackberry and plum are laced with hints of spice and backed by smooth tannins. A flavoursome wine of good structure and balance.

Item Code: ITM5242
"Deep red/purple colour with a very attractive, clean and pure, fruit-driven aroma of cedar, tobacco, cassis and violets. It's medium to full-bodied and intense, with gentle tannins which are not too pervasive, and an overall impression of superb balance. The aftertaste is elegant and balanced and more-ish. A ripping cabernet." Huon Hooke

"Soft, almost pillowy cabernet with a wealth of berried fruit flavour and sound, juicy, flowing length. Ticks boxes all along the way. Threads of bay leaves and assorted dried herbs run through fine-grained tannin. Will work equally well either now or later." Halliday Wine Companion

Item Code: ITM4836
Medium bodied and tightly wound with fine layers of oak overlaying dark and ripe Cabernet fruits. It is clearly varietal with finely polished, persistent tannins and savoury fruit sweetness on the finish. A classical Margaret River Cabernet that will reward cellaring.
Item Code: ITM7612
A powerful and intense red with generous blackcurrant and redcurrant fruit flavours. Fine tannins and cool acidity complete a harmonious wine that is excellent now but will get better with careful cellaring to 2024.
