Expert Reviews & Awards
"It starts out all serious and broody offering a hint of the savouriness with licorice, meat stock and wormwood. It's full-bodied with densely packed tannins and yet it doesn't feel weighty. It unfurls with aplomb and while it's a pleasure to drink now, time will be its benefactor (on the 2017 vintage)."

The grapes were hand harvested and transported to the winery for cooling overnight and hand sorting. Maceration lasted for six weeks with minimal pump overs and temperatures ranging between 12-27C. The wine was pressed to tank and allowed to settle for 7 days prior to oak maturation.
Cellar for up to 20 years from release.
About Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in many of the world’s wine regions, such as the Napa Valley in California, Hawke’s Bay in New Zealand, Colchagua Valley in Chile and Stellenbosch in South Africa. In France, Cabernet Sauvignon is the classic grape of the Haut Medoc, in Bordeaux, and it makes some of the world’s most highly prized and age-worthy wines. The red wines of Bordeaux are mostly a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. They are incredible wines, known throughout history as being the pinnacle of red wine making. In Australia, there are pockets of excellent Cabernet Sauvignon growing in regions such as the Eden Valley or the Adelaide Hills. However, Cabernet Sauvignon really excels in the Yarra Valley, the Margaret River and the Coonawarra. Interestingly, there tends to be a maritime influence in the top Cabernet Sauvignon wine regions. Viticulturalists say that this keeps the vineyards cool enough to retain the acidity in the grapes, while also allowing enough sunshine to develop good fruit flavours and to ripen the grapes. The Coonawarra also has the famous strip of red, ‘terra rossa’ soil, which is ideal for producing intensely flavoured and well structured wines. Australian Cabernet Sauvignon usually shows aromas and flavours such as blackcurrant, black cherry, dark chocolate, mint, black olive, eucalyptus or cassis, in any combination. The wine usually has firm tannins and a good acidity, ideal for helping Cabernet Sauvignon to age well. Overall, Australian Cabernet Sauvignon has a total abundance of flavour and it goes extremely well with prime cuts of beef – on a chilly night.
About Great Southern
The Great Southern Wine region is located 4 hours drive, heading south-east from Perth in Western Australia. It is one of the largest and most isolated wine regions in the world. The Great Southern Wine region includes the sub regions of Mount Barker, Porongurup, Frankland River, Albany and Denmark. Often compared to the Margaret River region, Great Southern has a strong Antarctic influence that provides a cool, maritime climate, ideal for fresh whites and spicy reds. The Margaret River, by comparison, is exposed to slightly warmer waters and breezes, from the Indian Ocean.
