The fruit for this wine comes from un-irrigated, hand pruned and hand picked vines grown at Skillogalee around 450m above sea level. The wine was vinified in open fermenters and then basket-pressed. No fining was needed. Malo-lactic (secondary) fermentation and maturation took place in predominantly French oak hogsheads for around 24 months, before the separate components were blended and bottled.

Vintage 2010 was a robust vintage where 100mm of rainfall received in mid-December compensated for New Years hot spell. Mild and cool ripening period from thereon in March & April resulted in ideal harvesting conditions.

Winery Tasting Notes


Caberbet Sauvignon 87%, Malbec 11% and Cabernet Franc 2%

This Cabernet blend (Cab Sauv 87%, Malbec 11% and Cab Franc 2%) is another dark, rich wine in the Skillogalee tradition, with intense colour and powerful vibrant aromas and flavours.


The wine is full and elegant with cassis, cherry fruit and black olive flavours. Fine vanillin oak and firm structural tannins add complexity and appeal to this wine.


Drink now with rich red meat dishes but this vintage has a backbone of natural acidity that will repay cellaring for 10 - 12 years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Skillogalee has a small modern, winery, crushing only around 250 tonnes, giving us the opportunity to hand-make individual wines in small batches. Fruit handling and vinification are undertaken using the best of traditional and modern technologies - modern winemaking techniques for whites, to preserve the fruit aromas and flavours, and more traditional techniques for reds - the use of open fermenters and basket pressing to maximise flavour and colour without over-extraction. We focus heavily on gentle fruit handling throughout and our winery hygiene programs are meticulous. In this way, we use the minimum amount of sulphur to keep wines safe from spoilage.
