Warm continental climate, low yielding vines, ancient Cambrian soils and fastidious viticulture produces intensely flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with clear regional and varietal character.
The wine has dark berry, briar and cassis aromas. The palate is structured, with firmly integrated tannins and generous line and length.
- VIC - Heathcote
A strong regional bouquet showing dark fruit and a touch of bay leaf spice; the tannins are quite fine, giving the palate a decidedly slippery aspect; quite forward and ready to go, but should age gracefully. Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2010)

The fruit for this wine is grown in our Willoughby Bridge Vineyard at Colbinabbin, at the northern end of the Heathcote wine region. Willoughby Bridge Vineyard is planted on the renowned Cambrian rich red dirt, one of the oldest soil types in Australia. Another warm and dry vintage gave us low yields of intensely complex fruit.
