Overview

A classic Cabernet that showcases what a great South Australian Cabernet should be. The small, thick-skinned grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon thrive, producing wines of exceptional quality. These wines are characterized by their distinct mint, cedar, and cassis notes, which are a testament to the unique terroir of Coonawarra. Dark purple in colour with a rich captivating fragrance, and a complex, smooth yet richly rewarding Cabernet palate with French Oak undertone.

Food pairing notes

Cabernet Sauvignon is a sublime match for sumptuous and satisfying winter fare, such as juicy rib eye steak, tender slow-cooked lamb shanks, and savory mushrooms. Its robust character and depth effortlessly enhance the flavors of these dishes, making it an impeccable companion for the dinner table throughout the season.

When considering food pairings, Cabernet Sauvignon excels alongside a variety of delectable options. Roasted beef, pork, and lamb all benefit from the wine’s bold presence. Mushroom-based dishes, pasta with red sauce, and burgers also harmonize beautifully with Cabernet Sauvignon. For a truly indulgent experience, try it alongside beef or pork ribs, grilled or roasted lamb, and a selection of cheeses. Of course, a well-prepared steak is always a classic choice to showcase the wine’s magnificence.

With its versatility and ability to elevate a wide range of dishes, Cabernet Sauvignon stands as a compelling choice for those seeking to enhance their dining experiences during the winter season.
