Overview

South Australia’s Limestone Coast is justifiably famous for its Cabernet sauvignon. Our soils and climate, while somewhat different to Cabernet’s home in and around the important and graceful French coastal city of Bordeaux, offer the vintage conditions, which suit this late-ripening classic variety.

Expert Reviews

93 Points "This is mulberried, leathery and full of fresh berry flavour, the extra couple of years in bottle softening it beautifully. It drinks like a charm and should be sought out (and after). Wonderful red drinking." Big Red Wine Book 2009/2010, Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (Australia), May 2009

92 Points & Highly Recommended "Attractive and generous blackcurrant and mulberry fruit with plum tannins and good oak; surprise packet, ready now but will hold" James Halliday Wine Companion 2009, James Halliday (Australia), July 08

Winery Tasting Notes

The early palate is gentle, before the varietal Cabernet fruit gets into the picture, and suddenly it oozes plum, cassis and soy, before subtle oak and dry tannins provide admirable length and persistence. A few more years in bottle will be good; we suggest that you drink the ’04 until approximately 2012 - preferably with a classic French provincial dish such as Pot au feu or Cassoulet. Or do what boat-loads of Bordeaux have done for years: cross the Channel - and enjoy it with roast beef and horseradish. The Yorkshire pudding is optional...
