Winemaker's Notes

Intense, almost black in color. Rich, ripe and complex, the bouquet is a voluptuous infusion of red berry, chocolate, mint, mushroom and cassis-like Cabernet aromas merging with lifted, spicy new oak. It is full bodied with persistent and mouth-filling ripe berry flavour and excellent structure. Matured in French oak for up to 26 month.

John Riddoch is the definitive Cabernet Sauvignon - produced from the top one per cent of available Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and then only in the years when grapes of extraordinarily high quality are available.

This immensely powerful Cabernet requires long term cellaring - 10 to 20 years - to fully appreciate its complexity.
