Limited stock.

Being able to blend with five varieties, this wine is contstantly an award winning wine.

The aromas are a complex of leafy Cabernet characters blended with plumy fruits and black spices from the Malbec and Petit Verdot.

The palate explodes with rich dark fruits and herbal flavours and persists throughout the mid palate where it gathers further weight from the smokey French oak and dusty tannins.

The silky finish allows the fruit flavour to continue throughout the palate giving great persistence and length. A classic wine with immense structure and longevity.

This wine is aged in selected French oak barriques for 24 months, which imparts a fine grain tannin structure and length.

To fully appreciate this wine, we recommend that it be decanted 3 to 4 hours before serving.

Cabernet Sauvignon 47%, Merlot 18%, Cabernet Franc 16%, Malbec 11%, Petit Verdot 8%.

Our Story
We travelled the world in search of the ultimate home for us, a place that would fulfil our dream of being makers of very special, unique wine. Many places charmed us -- Cyprus, France, Portugal, Spain, Madeira, New Zealand, Victoria, Tasmania, Margaret River and the Hunter Valley -- but we kept returning to the Barossa Valley, drawn by all it had to offer:

A unique district that maintains many of the great traditions lost in other areas.
A strong commitment to preserving a great vineyard heritage (where special wine starts!) rather than letting it be taken over by industry or sub-division.
A climate with four very distinct seasons.
A wonderful sense of community where everyone works together for the common good, taking pride in the achievements of one and all.
Upon seeing our 45 acre (18 hectare) vineyard, initially purchased in 1853 by George Friedrich Schmidt for one pound an acre, we knew we had discovered the vineyard and home of our dream. The blend of the old classic Barossa feel and subtle Mediterranean influences in our home is a philosophy carried over to our wines.

As we hoped, our wines are being enjoyed as symbols of the Barossa's simple elegance - a reflection of truly special wine traditions.
