Overview

The 2010 Raconteur is sourced from Carl Linder’s 80 year old Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard located in the Barossa Valley; these old vines are hand harvested and made using traditional techniques by Vinaceous contract winemaker Elena Brooks (Dandelion Vineyards).

The wine is matured in oak and selected by Vinaceous Winemakers Mike Kerrigan and Nick Stacy and sent to West Cape Howe Wine (WA) for finishing, fining, blending and bottling by Vinaceous.

The Raconteur ‘breaks the mold’ for Barossa Cabernet.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Lush, rich and deep purple in colour with bright hues.

Aroma

The aroma leaps from the glass with violets and black berry and mocha notes.

Palate

Not unlike a Rorschach Image, people will see different flavours across the palate; some will find ripe fleshy black currants and cassis, others will find crunchy sour cherries; but both complement the overall palate with intensity, weight, structure and texture.

Cellaring

Along with lip-smacking tannins and fine oak nuances, the 2010 Raconteur can easily be enjoyed on immediate opening or be cellared for up to 10 years.

Food Matching

It is absolutely a must with roast lamb, char-grilled rib-eye and/or array of cheeses; whatever your choice, the Raconteur will always entertain and command attention!
