Winemaker's Notes

The Barossa Valley is one of the warmest and most consistent wine regions in Australia. Growing Cabernet Sauvignon is generally considered a cool climate affair, but I love the aggressive nature of the variety, being quick growing, vigorous and hearty. Grown on the deep sand around the boundaries of our property, it is forced to push its roots down to the subsoil red clay from where it generates the largest canopies in our vineyard. In the heat of summer, the fruit is shielded from the sun which preserves the vegetative, herbaceous character of Cabernet along with generosity and richness synonymous with the Barossa climate.

Critical Acclaim

"Rusden’s 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Boundaries is a breathtaking 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee from 15-year-old vines that ranks with some of the finest ever made in Australia. Chris Ringland told me that the clonal material planted in the early eighties is revealing tremendous potential, and that’s certainly evidenced in this offering. While not a huge Cabernet at 14% alcohol, it reveals the classic minty, tobacco leaf, cedar, and black currant scents of a high-class Bordeaux in addition to a dense ruby/purple color, and a delineated, structured, full-bodied style with a finish that lasts a full minute. This stunning effort can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 years."
