Winemaker's Notes:

The Raconteur ‘breaks the mold' for Barossa Cabernet; lush, rich and deep purple in colour with bright hues, the aroma leaps from the glass with violets and black berry and mocha notes. Not unlike a Rorschach Image, people will see different flavours across the palate; some will find ripe fleshy black currants and cassis, others will find crunchy sour cherries; but both complement the overall palate with intensity, weight, structure and texture. Along with lip-smacking tannins and fine oak nuances, the 2009 Raconteur can easily be enjoyed on immediate opening or be cellared for up to 10 years and is absolutely a must with roast lamb, char-grilled rib-eye and/or array of cheeses; whatever your choice, the Raconteur will always entertain and command attention!
