Wines1999 Cabernet Sauvignon
Estate grown, produced and bottled. Shows a rich bouquet, intense liquorice and berry flavours, good mouth feel with balanced tannins, and long palate.
Estate grown, produced and bottled. This was late picked on the second weekend of May on a cold, snowy day. It is a full bodied, fruity dry wine with pear, lime and cinnamon flavours. A fine long palate and good acid finish. The Riesling is made to drink now, but its potential longevity is 30 years.
Estate grown and produced, it has been barrel fermented in a combination of old and new French oak barriques. On the palate this wine shows citrus, melon and peach flavours.
