Peter Lehmann VSV - Ruediger Cabernet Sauvignon 2009Barossa Valley
The Barossa vineyard landscape is a fascinating mosaic of soils and microclimates and can produce an extraordinary range of wines each reflective of their particular terroir. Through our network of over 160 independent Barossa grape growers, we have access to a portfolio of vineyards that has no peer in the Barossa winemaking community.
This Cabernet is a blend of two low yielding vineyards tended by Dudley and Trevor Ruediger, which is situated to the north of Nuriootpa on either side of Research Road, which neatly bisects the Light Pass and Ebenezer districts of the Barossa.
To the east in Light Pass, the Cabernet grows on light sandy loam, and to the west in the Ebenezer district it grows on red, loamy clay. The Ruediger vineyards have produced a wine of great style and strength, that showcases just how good Barossa Cabernet can be.
The colour is intense black/red. The bouquet is rich in blackcurrant and violets leading in to a richly flavoured palate showing fine grained tannins and a persistent finish.
A perfect accompaniment to roast duck and goose, pigeon and quail.
