The fruit for this wine is grown in Grant’s Cameron Vale vineyard which was planted between 1971 and 1975 in a fertile area between Lyndoch and Williamstown, with a portion sourced from the cool Eden Valley.
The 2012 vintage was an exceptional vintage in the Barossa, where good winter rains laid the foundation for a perfect spring. Mild and dry conditions along with cool nights throughout vintage produced near perfect ripening conditions and the resulting wines have exceptional fruit flavour profiles.

Grant Burge and chief winemaker Craig Stansborough put forward this may be the best vintage ever (upstaging the late Murray Tyrrell who only ever got to vintage of the century level). This is a blue blood cabernet, with elegance, length and intensity all wrapped up in blackcurrant and cedar flavours, supported by fine tannins through the finish and aftertaste.

Winery Tasting Notes
The 2012 Cameron Vale Cabernet Sauvignon is deep red with purple hues.
The nose has a lovely array of blackcurrant and dark fruit aromas, with hints of sweet spice and vanilla in the background.
The dense palate is rich, ripe and generous with an elegant palate structure full of cassis fruit and dark cherries matched with hints of spice and fine, savoury tannins.
The rich, complex and supple characters of this wine are a delicious match to roast leg of lamb, lamb chops or braised beef
