Overview

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.

Wrattonbully is situated 300km south east of Adelaide and 30km north of Coonawarra. The average summer temperatures are ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Our vineyards are on gentle slopes with rows running predominantly east-west.

The soils are well drained, and are mainly classic terra rossa of brown earth over limestone. Quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon country.

Our aim is to produce sustainable crops of intensely flavoured grapes by setting moderate crop levels and encouraging canopy growth. The wines are made in static and rotary fermenters that encourage good colour and fruit expression. The wine was matured with some time in oak barrels before final blending and bottling.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep crimson in colour tending to red.

Aroma

The 2015 Mawson’s exhibits the inviting aromatics of Satsuma plum and blackcurrant. Evocative notes of baking spices such as cinnamon and pimento give a sense of warmth and welcome. There is a real sense of place coming from the dusty and minty notes of the Australian bush.

Palate

You can taste the Terra Rossa soil in the 2015 Mawson’s Cabernet. The palate is lively and bright with expressive flavours of briar and cassis. The tannins are fine and chalky giving the wine great structure without being aggressive or overbearing. This is a delightful example of Limestone Coast Cabernet.

Food Match

An excellent food match is slow roasted lamb shoulder with pearl onions, garlic and rosemary; or a mushroom risotto with caramelised onions.
