Our philosophy is to capture the distinctive
elegance, finesse and vibrant fruit flavours of the
Barossa Valley, one of the worlds most celebrated
Along the foothills of the Barossa Valley, a tapestry
of ancient red friable clay soils combines with a warm
and dry climate to create a unique environment for
vines to develop fruit that has a vibrancy and depth
of flavour like nowhere else on earth.
From the very beginning, our viticultural
practices nurture the sustainable health of the
vine that moderates vine vigour and yield, and
produces small berries of intense flavour and
distinctive varietal character.
It starts with picking the grapes at ripeness levels
that give the wines a freshness of fruit and natural
balance of flavour. Modern winemaking techniques
allow us to carefully control fermentation and draw
out the delicate aromatics from the fruit whilst
retaining its varietal character and elegance. French
oak adds a seamless seductive texture and entices
further flavour development from the fruit.
Uniquely expressive in character with depth of
flavour, elegance and finesse, these contemporary
wines are made to enjoy upon release, yet they
will reward further cellaring.

(cab er nay saw vee nyon)—This highly adaptable grape grows almost anywhere it is relatively warm, but the best wines come from the Burgundy region of France (where it is a noble variety), California, and Australia. It became famous through the red wines of the Médoc district of Bordeaux and is now grown in Washington, southern France, Italy, Australia, South Africa, Chile, and Argentina. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes make wines that are high in tannin and medium- to full-bodied. Usually identified as having black currant or cassis flavors, the grape can also possess vegetal tones when the grapes are less than ideally ripe. The best wines are rich and firm with great depth, and are often aged for fifteen years or more. Because it is highly tannic, Cabernet Sauvignon is often blended with other less-tannic grapes such as Merlot.
