The artisan of iron has now made way for the new craftsman who has blended the oldest of Barossa traditions to forge this spectacular wine. Our Cabernet Sauvignon, the unsung hero of Barossa wine, has been matured in new (20%) and seasoned (80%) French Oak for two years, achieving the structure, depth and balance expected from this premium Australian grape growing region.
Medium depth, red, crimson in color. Lifted blueberry, black currant and cassis tickle the nostrils with integrated biscuit French oak adding to the aroma. Increasing the complexity are chocolate, black olive and liquorice nuances. Lovely, bright, primary fruit flows over the tongue, mingling with briary spice and herbaceous hints. Medium bodied yet full of flavour, ending in a long, dry and youthfully austere finish.
The bouquet is reminiscent of cassis and pencilly oak, with a hint of sweet spice; the palate is medium-bodied and fleshy, with generosity evident, but not showing a great deal of fruit definition; a pleasant wine.
