Winemaker's Notes:

"Super-concentrated, intense, and black as a moonless night, the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Sandown is a full-bodied, powerful, rich, impressive Cabernet that Bratasiuk claims will live for 15 or more years."

About Clarendon Hills:

Clarendon Hills is a small family-run winery based in Clarendon, South Australia. The company was founded by biochemist, Roman Bratasiuk, in 1990. The story of Clarendon Hills is one of passion, dedication and commitment to exception wine. It all began when this biochemist and wine lover decided to produce his own wine. Though he'd never trained as a winemaker, Roman let himself be guided by his refined palate and scientific knowledge. Following his favorite producers and preferred styles, Roman sought to make a version of the wines he loved.
