Winery Note - Another ground-breaking cross-continent blend of premium cabernet grapes grown in Mudgee NSW (60%) and Frankland WA (40%), fermented at cool to moderate temperatures to capture the varietal notes. Individual parcels were matured in a combination of one and two year old French oak barrels prior to final blending. This wine leads the new wave of Australian cabernets that highlight the bright ripe cherry, blackcurrant and leafy notes of the variety. Generous ‘forest fruits’ – ripe red berries to the fore, layered yet soft tannins and a lovely crisp, fresh finish that leaves you wanting for more.

This is not a typical Aussie cabernet. It comes from two relatively cool areas and is a little lean but is well...

This is a mid-weight, juicy, tart and edgy cabernet thanks to fruit sourcing from cooler regions like Frankland River...

Mint, spicy cinnamon, red currants and succulent cranberries are pleasant on this rather complex, cool climate...

There is an easy drinkability to this juicy red that literally melts into your palate. It's not terribly complicated...
