This dry-grown Cabernet Sauvignon has a Barossa richness that is wholly evident in its structure. Sourced from three vineyards within Southern Barossa, this wine has tremendous vitality that makes it stand out alone.

Medium red-purple; the fermentation was completed in French (70%) and American (30%) barriques, 15% new; the mouthfeel is sensuously soft, and the flavours are right in the heartland of cabernet sauvignon, with a mix of redcurrant and blackcurrant fruit, the tannins ameliorated by the barrel ferment influence, but still balanced (and needed).

Winery Tasting Notes
Rich, deep colour.
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon has a wonderfully complex cigary sweet lift on the nose, whilst the amalgam of dark fruits holds your
interest with a myriad of complementary notes.
The attack into the mouth gives an extraordinary sweet plushness with great dark fruits/chicory flavours supported by a fleshy mid palate sweetness that lingers. A little touch (15%) of new oak in this year’s Cabernet adds to the mix.
