This Cabernet Sauvignon is one of Chain of Ponds top signature wine.

Showing a little development colour; the bouquet reveals cedar and leaf aromas, with redcurrant and black fruits also on display; the palate is medium-bodied and fragrant, finishing with moderate intensity and length. Ben Edwards, Australian Wine Companion, Rating 90, 10th July 2013
Winery Tasting Notes
Deep red plum with a crimson cherry hue.
Intensely complex yet varietal Cabernet with lifted dark fruits of cassis, mulberry and blueberry, integrated with nuances of tomato vine, sandalwood, and tobacco leaf and hints of eucalypt. Secondary flavours of spice, mocha and cashew nuts balance and fill out the nose.
The palate is full bodied and displays seamlessly integrated fruit and savoury characters which fill out the palate to give a well rounded wine with exceptional fruit weight and length. Velvety tannins and tight acid give drinkability now along with great ageing potential for the next 10 years. Perfectly suited to a wood fire roasted beef or lamb served with all the trimmings or amongst friends on a crisp Autumn day.
