A seriously good Cabernet from a top spot in the Barossa. The Stonewell vineyard is a legend in these parts, and this Cabernet is released by its 5th generation owners, the Linke family. Densely packed with classic dark red fruits and suggestion of rusty earth, this is a rich and intense Cabernet that's much more powerful than its meagre price. Drink now cellar a good while.

Its Origins

The Linke family first planted grapes in the Barossa in the 1930s and for the past 30 years have have supplied premium fruit for St Hallett and Langmeil since 1996. This is their private label taking fruit from the famed Stonewell Block vineyard. The Linke family are a 5th generation Barossa German immigrants who started as farmers upon settlement. Now 3rd generation grape growers, Ted Linke having first purchased their ‘Stonewell Block’ in the 1930’s planting the families’ first vines. Since then Barry Linke has carried on the good work as well as expanding vineyard holdings by purchasing the ‘Dorrien Block’ in 1988. Now a total of 75 acres with the majority of production in Shiraz naturally. In 2000 Scott Linke joined the family business straight from school. In 2002 Scott decided to take a small parcel of fruit being just 2 barrels and so ‘Linke’ was born. The family has supplied premium parcels of fruit to St Hallets for just on 30 years and to Langmeil since they began in 1996.

What The Critics Say

Winemaker notes on 2016 vintage

"This wine was made from a small select parcel of fruit grown on our family vineyard at Stonewell in the Barossa Valley. The Cabernet Sauvignon vines are low yielding, producing a wine crimson in colour, with hints of chocolates and plums on the palate. The wine is full and well structured, drinking well now but will reward careful cellaring.""
