Wrattonbully, on the Limestone Coast, is a land of ancient Terra Rossa soils over a maze of limestone caves – a place of discovery. We named our Wrattonbully vineyard in honour of Australia’s acclaimed geologist and iconic Antarctic explorer, Sir Douglas Mawson. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians

Interesting wine under the Mawson’s label. Formerly a Yalumba brand, now under Hill Smith Family Vineyards.
Interesting because it’s so smooth and well pitched. It’s the kind of wine many merlot drinkers are looking for – except that it’s cabernet sauvignon. Soft, mulberried fruit with hits of tobacco, eucalypt, blackcurrant and black olive. Aromatic, well-ripened, medium-bodied (just) and ever-so-soft.

Winery Tasting Notes
Mawson’s Wrattonbully Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 displays vibrant and intense notes of blackcurrants, cedar and spice.
The palate is lively and fresh, opening with warm deep flavours of mocha and chocolate, which develop into blackcurrants and dark cherry. The wine is structural yet supple, finally finishing with lasting notes of cedar and leather.
The wine is an excellent match with slow roasted lamb shoulder.
