Vinaceous Reverend V Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Deep and brooding purple in color, this Cabernet exhibits all the regional characteristics of Mount Barker, with crunchy cassis perfume and cedar notes following onto the palate of rich ripe berries. Generous weight and texture support the palate while the balance of oak and tannin provide exceptional length from start to finish.

As Australia is a huge landmass, not all varieties grow in one place, so the Vinaceous concept is to think very carefully about the variety or style of wine desired, and then to make the wines in the best-suited region. Vinaceous Wines also looks to the future with new and emerging varieties grown in Australia, such as Vermentino, Pinot Grigio, Malbec and Tempranillo, to complement the more traditional offering of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Vinaceous labels and marketing reflect a philosophy of a travelling theatrical winemaking company. Each label represents one of nine personalities: men, women, angels, demons, mermaids, and other creatures of mythology, as a way of visually bringing this concept to life. Vinaceous champions single varietal wines (making only one red blend) from key maritime climates: Margaret River, Adelaide Hills, and McLaren Vale, the most noted wine regions of Australia. Some vineyards are Vinaceous-owned, while others are contracted, but all are subjected to the same standards across all aspects, from growing to harvest, winemaking to bottling. The Vinaceous philosophy on winemaking is simple: to produce the best varietal wines from the best vineyards, from the best regions in Australia.
Occupying the tip of Western Australia’s spectacular southern coastline is a wine region of impressive natural diversity called the Great Southern. Here cool climate loving varieties like Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grow in vineyards hugging its jagged coastlines.
Farther inland, among Great Southern's rolling hills and flatlands, a more pronounced temperature shift between day and night is perfect for the the production of exciting Riesling wines as well as impressive Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
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, Malbecand 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.
