Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

Eden Valley

Each grape variety has its preferred soil type and will not produce quality wine in the wrong site. A small part of our vineyard was planted to merlot in 1998 and later grafted to savagnin, neither of which reached our high quality requirements. The vines were then grafted to cabernet sauvignon, a variety which requires a lot of patience to achieve the required ripeness to produce great wines. The resulting cabernet sauvignon is a top quality wine, showing the importance of the site and the associated care for this grape variety.

Tasting Notes

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is made from premium, single vineyard grapes grown in the cool climate of Eden Valley. The vines are hand pruned and the grapes hand-picked.

At this stage of its development, it has a lovely, deep purple colour, alluring red berry, plum and spice aromas, with just a hint of vanillin oak.

On the palate it has gorgeous, appealing flavours with soft oak notes and a long, lingering finish.

Product Name

2016 Cabernet Sauvignon



Wine Making

The grapes were hand harvested, fermented then gently pressed in our traditional basket press before maturing for 18 months in French oak barrels.


This wine has a great future in front of it, if cellared correctly, as it will continue to evolve and become more complex over the next few years. It will develop into a sensationally svelte wine.

Food Suggestion

Currently this wine goes fantastically with crumbly cheese or Italian style dishes.
