    Discover Decadent Cabernet: A Smooth Classic from Barossa Valley

    We invite you to indulge in the refined charm of our Decadent Cabernet, a true expression of a quintessential Barossa Valley Cabernet vintage. This delicious wine offers a softer, riper style, making it a perfect match for those who appreciate a rounder, fuller experience akin to the allure of Shiraz.

    Tasting Note: Embrace the transformation of Cabernet as it grows in the warm embrace of the Barossa Valley. Shedding its austere and restrained nature, it blossoms into a full-bodied explosion of fruit. Classic blackcurrant mingles with the intensified flavors of blueberry and prune plum. A dash of high cocoa chocolate and dark roasted coffee add depth and complexity to this remarkable blend.

    Pairing: Decadent Cabernet boasts svelte, savory tannins, making it a delightful companion for barbecued meats or that enticing block of mature cheese calling for your attention.

    Alcohol: 14.5%

    Vinification: Our Decadent Cabernet undergoes a meticulous vinification process, starting with cold soaking on skins to extract color, followed by extended skin contact for 21 days, adding structure and weight to the palate. Gentle pressing and secondary fermentation in oak barrels further enhance its character.

    Maturation: Aged for 15 months in 3rd-4th fill French Oak Barriques, our Decadent Cabernet develops a velvety texture and subtle oak influences.

    Vineyard: Sourced from a single vineyard planted in 1998, this wine hails from the iconic subregion of Ebenezer, a cherished grape-growing area within the Barossa Valley. The ancient soils in this region restrict vine growth, yielding a wine of exceptional intensity and concentration.

    Cellaring: While Decadent Cabernet delights upon release, its potential for further development is undeniable. With careful cellaring, it will gracefully evolve for up to eight years from vintage, rewarding patience with even greater complexity and finesse.

    Limited Availability: Our Decadent Cabernet is a testament to the beauty of Barossa Valley Cabernets from a remarkable vintage. A true gem, this wine is limited in production, ensuring its exclusivity and desirability among wine enthusiasts.

    Unveil the decadence of our classic Cabernet and elevate your wine experiences to new heights. Savor the finesse and richness that define the heart of the Barossa Valley in every luxurious sip.
