Our most awarded Aussie Cabernet has a new vintage.
Multi golds previously make for some impressive pedigree. Unfortunately the hype is not followed by joyous volumes. We have our allocation in store so make the most quickly.
A delicious Cabernet full of blackberry, thyme and chocolate with cedar notes. It is impressively concentrated and plush, and delivers excellent fruit power and rich dark fruit intensity, wonderfully enhanced by velvety mouthfeel and a long succulent finish.
Off 22 and 50 year old vines.
"Lifted aromas of red and black fruits, subtle perfume and wood spice. Flavours of blackberry and cassis. Some earth and a little spice. Medium to full bodied, plush through the palate with fine grained tannins and a subtle wood spice finish.

"Wonderfully ripe and beautifully fragrant, the bouquet shows blackcurrant, sweet cherry, clove and cedary oak aromas, leading to a splendidly weighted palate offering succulent fruit flavours with plump mouthfeel. Well supported by silky texture and polished tannins, making it fabulously drinkable." 5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2023
