Tasting Notes

Dark purple red in colour. Classic cabernet nose of blackcurrant, redcurrants and subtle leaf nuance. Time reveals cedar and fine oak toast plus violet like floral. The palate is medium bodied and savory with blue and black fruits laced through fine emery-like tannins. The balanced acidity adds length, line and pleasing sense of refreshment that makes you return for more.

Vineyard Notes

This wine was sourced from the north facing Oakridge vineyard, sited in the grey alluvial loams of Coldstream.

Winemaker's Notes

A traditional winemaking approach was used to produce this wine – fermentation on skins with twice daily pump-overs for four weeks followed by 15-month maturation in 225 litre French oak barrels.

Vintage Notes

A warm, wet spring followed by a dry summer/autumn period conditions has delivered good crops in near perfect harvesting conditions.

The Real Review - 98pts

“Deep red-purple colour; bright. Crushed mulberry and cassis on the nose, very ripe fruit doing most of the talking. A subtle patina of pencilly oak. The palate is loaded with concentrated fruit and very drying tannins and this results in a cheek-sucking grip at the end. Full bodied, solid cabernet that will reward time in the cellar—indeed, it needs it. It’ll be worth the wait. Outstanding cabernet.” – Huon Hooke

Halliday Wine Companion - 97pts

“Fruit from a 1996-planted vineyard. Four weeks post-fermentation maceration, matured in French barriques (35% new) for 15 months. Virtually identical winemaking to the Original Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon but, as always, this is the denser, more powerful and structured wine. On the nose there’s a core of perfectly ripened black fruits, crushed violets, dark chocolate and graphite. The medium bodied, firmly structured and persistent palate is equally good, and anyone fortunate enough to still have a bottle 10-15 years (if not longer) from now will be well rewarded.” – Philip Rich
