A velvety textured wine showcasing the opulence of the McLaren Vale style. The wine is a blend of premium cabernet sauvignon sourced from Tatachilla's Clarendon vineyard and from growers based in Blewitt Springs and McLaren Vale township.

"Tatachilla has been a part of McLaren Vale since vines were planted more than 100 years ago. With hints of cloves, rhubarb and blackberries, this typical McLaren Vale cabernet sauvignon has a smooth finish."
Rating Nick Stock, Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine (SEP/2012)
"Lovely example of McLaren Vale cabernet. The nose shows some blackcurrant, plum and spicy clove-like dark chocolate characters. The palate has an inner structural firmness created by those firm tannins, yet there is suppleness and silky fine month feel that is thoroughly brilliant. Great partner to the shiraz from this vintage."

Winery Tasting Notes
Lively ruby red with violet hues.
Tomato leaf, plum and dark chocolate with a hint of clove and earthy tones.
Round and vibrant front palate with blackberry and rhubarb, tannins are smooth, ample and persistent with hints of coffee and black olives. It has generous length with a lingering finish.
Open one hour prior and serve at room temperature. Well suited to chicken and lamb couscous, and braised marinated kangaroo.
Enjoy this wine now or cellar for up to 10 years.
