The Gigglepot on the label is Sarah and Sparky's daughter Holly, who couldn't stop laughing about how she looked with these crazy black glasses on!

‘The 2010 Gigglepot Cabernet Sauvignon was produced mostly from McLaren Vale fruit with about 10% coming from Langhorne Creek. It has a very deep garnet-black color and offers a well defined Cabernet nose with plenty of warm cassis, ripe blackberry and chocolate aromas with touches of Provence herbs and cedar. Rich, very full bodied and very fruity in the mouth, it has a medium level of velvety tannins, refreshing acidity and a nice long textured finish. Approachable now, it should drink well to 2020+’. Rating 92+ points, Drink to 2020+ Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, www.erobertparker.com
‘Ripe, rich and spicy, an effusive mouthful of black cherry, plum, coffee and smoke flavors, melding together smoothly on the finish...Best from 2013 through 2018.’ 91 points, Harvey Steiman, www.winespectator.com
Winery Tasting Notes
Dark garnet-purple in colour
Gigglepot is distinctly Cabernet with serious intensity. The nose displays blackcurrant, fresh plum and blackberry fruits, with hints of dried bay leaf, clove and loads of spice.
Greatly concentrated, with fine integrated tannins and lively acidity it finishes with lingering cassis, soft vanilla and cedar oak.
