Winemaker's Notes

This elegant Cabernet displays beautiful concentrated aromas and flavors with a refined structure that will linger in your mouth and delight you. The Gigglepot on the label is Sarah and Sparky's daughter Holly, who couldn't stop laughing about how she looked with these crazy black glasses on!

The grapes were grown on the Belladarren vineyard in Langhorne Creek and the Prime vineyard in McLaren Vale.

Pairs with venison, BBQ spare ribs, blue cheese and roast lamb.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Gigglepot Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from mostly McLaren Vale fruit with about 12% coming from Langhorne Creek. It was aged in 80% American oak and 20% French, 53% new. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it reveals an incredibly intense nose of both crushed fresh black currant and creme de cassis with underlying mint, dark chocolate, cassia and allspice aromas. Full-bodied and juicy fruited, there’s a nice harmony of structure and flesh on the palate with refreshing acid and medium-firm finely grained tannins. It finishes long and spicy. It's tempting forward now but should reward another year or two in bottle and drink to 2018+."
93 Points

"Firm and fleshy, offering a juicy mouthful of ripe currant and cherry fruit. Gains welcome complexity, with hints of eucalyptus and bay leaf as the finish extends nicely. Neither the fruit nor savory notes prevail, creating a good tension. Drink now through 2013. 1,913 cases made. "

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
