Winemaker Notes

The wine was 100% barrel fermented and aged in new oak, 20% French and 80% American, for 12 months. This wine exudes the elegance and purity of a McLarenVale Cabernet. The nose is refined with aromas of blackcurrant and plum fruit. In the mouth the fruit is rich, harmonious and integrated. The palate is layered, with a beautiful delicate fine structure and a generous smooth finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
There are about 500 cases of the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon, which was aged in both American and French wood (one-half new). The Screaming Eagle of South Australia, it possesses great purity, layers of fruit, enormous volume and intensity, and at the same time, it is strikingly elegant and well-proportioned. This stunningly pure Cabernet tastes like pure creme de cassis intermixed with licorice and oak. It should drink well for 15-16 years, but who will be able to hold onto it that long?

Shirvington, Australia
2002 Cabernet Sauvignon
Our story started in 1996 when we, the Shirvington Family (Lynne, Paul and sons Tony and Mark), purchased 16 hectares of prime land in Willunga, South Australia. After extensive researching and touring of Australia’s major wine regions, this area was chosen for its ability to consistently produce outstanding table wines of great character and quality. Willunga is just south of McLaren Vale on the Fleurieu Peninsula, an area internationally renowned for its red wine, in particular Shiraz.

In the winter of 1996, work began on the development of our first vineyard, Redwind.

Further purchases in 1997 and 2001 saw the development of two new vineyards, Kurrawyba and Manjalda, in McLaren Flat and McLaren Vale.

Working closely with our viticulturist and winemakers, the quality of fruit was such that our first commercial release, the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon, was awarded Wine of the Year at the prestigious McLaren Vale Wine Show. This wine, coupled with our 2001 Shiraz, was the first to be selected by Dan Philips of The Grateful Palate, for distribution in the United States.

We will continue to produce wines that are testimony to McLaren Vale’s great reputation.

Enjoy.
