Winemaker's Notes

This wine forms part of Clarendon Hills' 'Premier Cru' classification.

Elegant fruit and finely worked oak use always headline this ballerina'-esque perfume. A lifted cabernet expression that is always approachable early and offers supreme enjoy ability in its first 15 years of life.

This vineyard was planted in 1965 in rich, chocolate-brown clay soils. It produces cabernet, merlot and syrah varieties which all exhibit a bitter chocolate, earthy/kalamata characteristic.

Critical Acclaim

"This isn't an oversized Cab, but that's its appeal. It's excellent, with flavors of black cherry, cassis and black grape that surge on the palate, and just don’t let go. It's all swaddled tightly in young, smooth tannins, and gumtree and beef stock accents on the nose. Drink 2007 and beyond"
92 Points

"The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Brookman Vineyard is ripe, rich, and full-bodied revealing classic aromas of smoky herbs, vanilla, black currants, and damp earth. Made from 60-year-old vines, it is a structured, expansive, deep Cabernet to drink now and over the next decade.

Roman Bratasiuk is one of Planet Earth's greatest winemakers, and obviously a top-notch viticulturist given his obsession with sourcing extraordinary fruit from ancient McLaren Vale vineyards. "

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
