Individual Cabernet Sauvignon parcels were fermented in open vats then matured in new French oak barrels for 24 months. Only the best barrels were then selected to make up the Reserve Cabernet blend. 2 years additional bottle maturation allows further flavour development and tannin integration before the wines’ release.

Deep and compelling pure cassis bouquet, with thyme and cedar a strong component; the palate is compact, full of luscious black fruits, seasoned with a suggestion of mint; long, rich and harmonious. Rating 94 - Drink by 2020 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2011)
Winery Tasting Notes
The 2007 Reserve Cabernet is a powerful yet elegant wine, showing notes of blackberry, bramble and earth, complemented by subtle undertones of choc and savoury nuances.
The wine is supported by a fine defining tannin structure and shows spice and complexity from the careful use of new French oak.
Will evolve and open up with cellaring 6-10+ years.
Matches well with red meat, game dishes or even a delicious cheese plate!
