James Halliday – Very good colour; another example of Helen McCarthy’s skills as a winemaker, sculpting a cabernet with razor-sharp varietal definition, and also managing to provide textural complexity going beyond the tannins that are part and parcel of the variety. It all adds up to a cabernet that is already enjoyable, but also has a long future. James Halliday Wine Companion, March 2017

About This Wine

The wine has a perfumed herbal aroma of bay leaf, black currant leaf, dried sage and black olive. A ripe black currant character adds to the wine's charm.

The palate is fruit forward with characters of black currant and plum dominating the front palate. The wine has an underlying spiciness and supple long tannins. Will cellar to 2024.

Barossa Valley Wine

The Barossa Valley wine region has historically and currently still is one of Australia's most prestigious premium wine producing regions. Located just 60km north east of Adelaide city centre, the climate there is very hot and dry which is perfect for the big bold reds the area is famous for.

A straight Shiraz is what Barossa is most well known for, however Rhone blends, such as Shiraz Cabernet are also very popular. While much less prevalent, white wines (Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon) are planted on the higher altitude hillsides where the ocean breeze cools temperatures down to a level suitable for producing these varieties as well.

Some of Australia's earliest Shiraz plantings can be found here dating as far back as the 1850's. While not always a guarantee of quality, it might be worth seeking out and trying one of the region's "old vine shiraz" if you haven't yet.
