What The Critics Say
Winemaker notes on previous 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."
