Winemaker's Notes:

Our Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon has been recognised all over the world as one of Australia's great Cabernet Sauvignon styles.

Cabernet Sauvignon grown in the Barossa produces beautifully structured wines noted for their longevity and the handsome reward they give to those who choose to cellar these wines.

The color is deep red with a dense black centre, and the nose gives tantalising aromas of chocolate, blackcurrants, with hints of nutmeg, cloves and star anise. It is a beautifully rich Cabernet with superb depth of seamless fruit. A supple wine, it is lively and inviting and finishes satisfyingly firm. A wonderful drop, indeed.
