This wine is made from fruit grown on the historic 150-year-old Turkey Flat vineyard. The Cabernet Sauvignon is planted on the river flat near the cellar door where tobacco once grew during World War I. Although the tobacco did not thrive, the Cabernet Sauvignon vines produce fruit of exceptional richness and concentration.

What sets Cabernet Sauvignon apart is its ability to travel, to set down its roots in distant lands and still produce something that is recognizably Cabernet, whatever the circumstances and conditions.

Whilst the Barossa Valley has largely earned its reputation for making 'big' reds with the Shiraz grape variety, this wine is certainly proof that the Barossa can produce Cabernet with power and concentration.

The 1999 vintage has produced a full-bodied ripe Cabernet Sauvignon with an elegant and fragrant bouquet featuring classic Cabernet aromas of cassis, chocolate, mint and red currants.

The palate is intense and full-bodied with sweet ripe berry fruits, plums, cedar, dark chocolate flavours with gentle oak support and a lingering fine tannin finish.
