    “This is one of Australia’s greatest Cabernets, staring down Coonawarra and Margaret River (just for starters)...It has a purity and elegance that puts it in a class of its own.” James Halliday
  • Tasting notes
    An exceptional nose of cassis, black and red currants, blackberry leaf and violets with underlying savoury nuances and anise spice, all supported by dark cedary French oak. The rich palate of blackberries and redcurrants greet has a purity of acidity with an elegant structure and layers of long, silky fine-grained tannins.

James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au

Vintage 2012 - 79% cabernet sauvignon, 15% cabernet franc, 7% merlot, vinified separately, matured in French hogsheads (38% new) for 18 months. This is one of Australia's greatest cabernets, staring down Coonawarra and Margaret River (just for starters). The argument evaporates when you admit - as you must - that those wines are in such different styles it's an apples and oranges comparison. The real comparison is between this and Mount Mary. It has a purity and elegance that puts it in a class of its own. Drink by 2039
