Winemaker Notes

Deep red in color. A rich and brooding nose that has notes of blackberry jam, blood plums and boysenberries; these are complemented by hints of vanilla and chocolate. A wine that has volumes of ripe sweet fruit, a plush mouth feel with soft and velvety tannins and generosity of flavor. It has all the hallmarks of traditional Barossa Valley red wine showing plum pudding, chocolate and licorice flavors with a seamless finish.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This Cabernet is built for current consumption, boasting a savory, complex blend of meat and herb elements nicely balanced by just enough dark plum fruit. The tannins are soft to the point of creaminess, letting just a bit of warmth show through on the lingering finish.

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers work diligently to ensure grapes reach the perfect levels of phenolic ripeness.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Shiraz on its own or Rhône Blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mourvèdre. Often Shiraz and Cabernet partner up for plump and powerful reds. While much less prevalent, light-skinned varieties such as Riesling, Viognier or Semillon produce vibrant Barossa Valley whites.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
