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.
Varietal cassis aromas are supported by blackberry, mint and forest floor characters on the palate. Maturation for 22 months in a mixture of new and old French and American oak adds structure and layers of complexity.

Crafted from selected parcels of intense Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from the exceptional 2015 vintage in Avoca, comes this richly layered and sophisticated Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is a tapestry of blackberry and blackcurrant flavours, intertwined with forest floor, mint, spice and cedar oak characters. Fine grained tannins create an opulent mouthfeel and lead to a long, lingering finish. Pure Cabernet Sauvignon in style, this wine can be enjoyed now or cellared years to come.
