Awards and Accolades
2013 Vintage: Special Value Wine & 92 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "It's hard to expect more from a 1yo Coonawarra cabernet; it is full of fresh cassis and redcurrant fruit, fearsome cabernet tannins nowhere to be seen, instead the length comes from delicious cabernet fruit. A standout bargain."
From the Winery
The Yearling Cabernet Sauvignon is made to present lively, fruity aromas with a soft, supple structure. This vibrant yet approachable wine is absolutely perfect to enjoy now.
The Coonawarra and Cabernet combination is a true gift from nature: an exceptional mix of natural elements – a cool climate and the perfect soil. Coonawarra’s Terra Rossa soil is unique, being a mixture of red clay and fertile loam overlaying deep limestone.
Great wines come from great grapes and this is exemplified in our vineyards. Forty years old and growing strong. 150 hectares of family owned, managed and sustainably grown vineyards are entirely on this precious terra rossa.
