Description

"It is impressively fruited and fragrant on the nose displaying blackcurrant, mixed spice, cocoa, toasted hazelnut and subtle game characters. The palate is concentrated and beautifully weighted, and delivers excellent fruit richness, wonderfully supported by silky texture and fine tannins. The wine is immediate, flavoursome and very attractive. At its best: now to 2021" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2017

This wine displays the trademark Cabernet Sauvignon characters; rich and generously loaded with dark fruit flavours and well supported by oak spice, dried herb and subtle savoury notes. This wine has great texture and fine long tannins that give the wine structure, persistence and fruit length.

The grapes used to make this wine have been sourced from select vineyards in McLaren Vale. With dominant winter rainfall, warm, dry summers that are tempered by the proximity to the Gulf St. Vincent and low humidity, McLaren Vale has one of the most consistent climates in which to grow premium wine grapes.

In the 1840s, a local Farmers & Stockholders Club was formed to bring together the farmers and merchants of the burgeoning colony. On their agenda were many interesting items ranging from high wage costs and improved cropping practices. Vines were a part of the make-up of the agricultural and horticultural pursuits of the district and to conclude Club meetings, wine was drunk to toast ‘prosperity to the region’.

A good Cabernet. Some benefit from a bit of bottle age. Very drinkable. Good Cabernet characters.
