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.
This wine exhibits pronounced notes of blackcurrant and cedar alongside savoury herbal notes. The palate offers fleshy dark fruits and fresh acidity, which is integrated with a sweet clip of new oak. Length is excellent.

"It’s pure Margaret River. Gravel and blackcurrant, bay and cream. It rumbles and grumbles, as it seduces. There’s perfume aplenty, texture too, sets of tannin and a long filigreed finish. Reduction, toast, choc-mint, florals, black olives; all make appearances here. The cellar beckons." Campbell Mattinson

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.

A enduring part of the Coonawarra landscape since its first vintage in '91.96 points - James Halliday's Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM22466
A dark garnet hue sits in the glass with immediate aromas of ripe cassis and blackberry. Hints of cocoa, new oak and fir complement the juicy fruit mélange. A full-bodied entry is succeeded by a mid-palate of dark fruits and a smooth, integrated minerality. The tannins are well developed, allowing the wine to finish with length.
Item Code: ITM23589
"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
