This wine is from the vintage’s best Cabernet Sauvignon barrels and in 2017 produced from a single vineyard in central Eden Valley.
The grapes were handpicked and 100% de-stemmed into an open top fermenter, where they remained for 20 days. Naturally fermented and hand plunged daily then pressed to a mix of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads for maturation. Matured in barrel for 20 months with no racking, before being clarified and bottled without filtration.

Made in only exemplary years. This classic wine is our offering to Eurus, Greek God of the East Wind, and is only made in exemplary vintages when Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays outstanding quality. Eden Valley is typically cooled in the mornings and evenings by Easterly gully winds which are ideal for slowing the ripening and refining varietal flavours.

The Real Review

Very deep, saturated purplish colour advertises this wine's potent personality well. It smells intensely-concentrated with blackcurrant and violet aromas, cedary oak making a positive contribution. In the mouth, it's plump and round with sustained briary flavours and a solid structure of ripe tannins. Cabernet with a friendly Aussie accent. Ralph Kyte-Powell May 2019
