The Crossings vineyard planted in 1969 is the fruit source, with low yields around two tonnes per acre.
This wine is made by selecting the best barrels of Cabernet that we have at time of blending. Open top fermenters, open cage bag pressing and French oak barrel maturation for 24 months are the basics. We look for the Barossa Cabernet’s varietal flavours and the French oak influence by tasting on style for the Reserve.
Full bodied. Deep colours with aromas of blackcurrants, cassis and a small herbal note. The palate displays blackcurrant, cassis, dark fruits with a slight minty, leafy herbaceous flavour that complements the French oak and elegant tannins, seamless finish.
