Dark and broody, with upfront notes of cigar box, dark chocolate and cherry on the nose. This Cabernet also has notes of brambly black fruits, shortbread and a warming spice, with earthy undertones of tobacco leaf and eucalypt.

The palate is medium bodied with red and dark fruits throughout. Notes of compote and fresh earth and a medium – long, clean finish.

Vineyard Notes
The 2019 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is made from fruit sourced from several parcels throughout Coonawarra. The majority comes from southern Coonawarra, including parcels form our estate ‘Abbey’ vineyard and also our viticulturist Brett Williams’ vineyard. Completing the blend is fruit from Tim Kidman’s property in northern Coonawarra. The grapes were picked using a Pellenc Selectic Harvester - which de-stems in the vineyard and leaves much of the organic matter in the vine.
Production Notes
Following fermentation, all the parcels completed malolactic fermentation in either French oak barrels or stainless steel tanks. Approximately 65% of the blend went into third fill French oak for 6 – 15 months before bottling.
Winemaker Notes
Our Coonawarra Series wines are made in an accessible style, from younger vines, to reward immediate to short term drinking; although they also retain the structure to age for 5 years.
