Established by John Reynell in 1838, the winery boasts a prestige as birthplace of South Australia's wine industry. Set on twenty one picturesque hectares at the very gateway to McLaren Vale, this historic winery exudes classic charm with its restored heritage. The finest harvests of Cabernet are harvested and destemmed, crushed into a mix four and seven tonne open fermenters for ten days vinification, treated to a regimen of regular hand plunging and pumping of juices over skins to gently extract colour, flavour and tannin. Upon completion, the skins are basket pressed and batches are racked into a selection of seasoned and new fine oak barriques for a course of malolactic and extended term of maturation.
Vibrant dark purple with brilliant crimson hues. Lifted plum aromas, ripe cherries over underlying aniseed and cigar box notes, complex characters of cassis, savoury black olive and sweetly perfumed violets. The palate is powerful and textured with layers of cassis, ripe fleshed plum and tasty mocha chocolate. Fine tannins complement the fruit, whilst the acid structure provides a wine of great structure, complexity and length.
