Notes sourced from Southcorp.
Whilst 1996 was one of the coldest growing seasons on record, the months leading up to vintage were very favourable. Warm ripening conditions produced grapes with good structure and balance. Cabernet fruit saw a higher bunch count than usual, compensating for erratic fruit set. "Our Cabernet this year has good, strong varietal character and is very rich in flavour," said Winemaker Greg Clayfleld.Made from a blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon the wine was matured in new American oak barrels and hogsheads for 16 months. Dark plum-red colour. The nose displays aromas of black pepper with classical mint-like Cabernet overtones and hints of vanillin oak. The palate is full bodied and displays a firm tannin structure but is in balance to the rich ripe intense Shiraz fruit. Long aftertaste and good concentration. This wine has the potential to rival the outstanding vintages of '86, '90 and '91 and is still quite tight in structure and will benefit from at least 5 years further cellaring. Winner of the 1999 Arthur Kellerman Trophy. 13.0% alcohol volume.
