2013 Cabernet Sauvignon


2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage 2013 produced good crops with fruit coming in late April and with good fruit definition. Blended from our Dead Morris, Quarry and 1976 Old Cabernet vineyards, this wine spent 19 months in tight-grain French oak from Taransaud, Saury and Berger cooperages, before bottling in December 2014. 

Deep rich red in colour, the nose is very perfumed with aromas of pure cassis, violets, blackberry and graphite combined with fine mocha-coffee French oak. The palate is structured and elegant with ripe cassis fruit and a fine-tannin finish. This wine will reward careful cellaring, and we recommend decanting before drinking. 

HARVESTED 19th - 27th March 2013
ALC/VOL 14.5%
pH 3.44
CELLARING Optimum at 10-12 years after vintage


James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2016: 96 points

“From three vineyards, matured for 19 months in French oak from big –name coopers. A serious Cabernet showing just what Coonawarra can do in a top vintage; it is intense, complex and packed with cassis/blackcurrant fruit, savoury tannins and positive oak.” Drink to 2053
