Description

"Richly fruited and youthfully charming, the wine shows crème de cassis, Black Doris plum, violet and mixed spice characters, leading to a concentrated palate that is wonderfully weighted and silky. It is powerful and mouthfilling with generous flavours, finishing long and velvety. At its best: now to 2026" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2019

This Cabernet shows true character of the region through dark, brooding berry fruit flavours with earth and undergrowth. Subtle floral, violet-like aromas and flavours with vanilla and cedar meandering through the rich fruit flavours with subtle dried herb and tobacco nuance. Drinking wonderfully now as a full flavoured and mouth-filling wine with plushness of fruit pulled long with typical grainy tannins that will also ensure longevity if cellared carefully.

A cool start to the growing season with plenty of rain events throughout Spring ensuring vine health and vitality was optimised. Although the average Summer temperature was higher than normal, the region didn’t experience any extreme heat days. The late start and the warm days delivered exceptionally complex, intensely flavoured berries whilst maintaining a fine natural acidity in most cases. Tannins and flavours achieved optimum ripeness and this should be considered a very good year.

Sourced from two neighbouring blocks of a well-established vineyard and picked early in the morning to avoid the heat of the day. 100% destemmed and partially fermented in steel tank and older oak before blending and maturation for 9 months in mostly second use oak. Bottled with minimal fining and filtration and released afterer three months maturation in bottle.

The Indigo Grape Growers Collective is a modern range of Organic wines sourced and crafted by a small number of like-minded vignerons from their organically grown vineyards in the historic wine regions of North-Eastern Victoria. Though collectively known as the greater Indigo region, more specifically the fruit for these wines was grown in the heart of Rutherglen and neighbouring Glenrowan, famous for producing warm, fuller bodied wine styles with rich flavours and heady aromatics. These wines are part of a progressive generation that choose sustainable organic farming as well as crafting wines that are suitable for vegans.
