Our Blackberry Patch Cabernet is sourced from vineyards in the Fleurieu region of South Australia. Its ancient soils sit over pre-cambrian Limestone and the cool climate is ideal for growing expressive grapes

Exhuberant cassis, dark plum and obvious blackberry fruits align with enveloping, re ned-yyet-generous tannins. These avours are accented with the perfumes cedary notes derived from the oak which our wine was matured in. The result; a wine with structure, elegance and poise, and a core of clotten cream... now that’s our Blackberry Patch! 

2016 | Blackberry Patch
FLEURIEU PENINSULA CABERNET

The fruit for Blackberry Patch comes from one block in the heart of the Langhorne Creek and another in the Blewitt Springs sub-region of the McLaren Vale. Primary fermentation takes place in a combination of stainless steel vats and 5 tonne open fermenters after which the wine is assembled into tank and allowed to complete a natural malo-lactic fermentation before being pressed o . It is then transferred to new & well-seasoned hogsheads and aged for up to12 months prior to bottling with minimal ltration. This results in a wine with purity of fruit that is regal and eminently satisfying to allow for regular indulgence. 

Colour: Opaque inky black/purple with a deep regal purple hue. Nose:Inviting aromas of cassis, dark cherries and licorice smells with undertones of cedar, dark chocolate & clotted cream. Entry: Direct, full and ne and precise Cabernet berry fruits. A perfect Cabernet entry. Alert bright fruit.

Middle Palate: No callow Cabernet “donut hole”... just velvety, mouth lling fruit, especially blackberries, blackcurrants and cedar. Juicy fresh berry tart-sweetness, tempered with some chewy but typical Cabernet tannin.

After Palate: Enticing cigar box and plush fruit avours with taught, trademark tannin. Intense and complex but with the depth of dark berry avours.

Finish: This wine hangs about after you have tasted it for so long it seems almost self defeating, although the tannins call for another sip whilst it’s still in the mouth. Precise ‘line and length’ that lingers on and on with ripe blackcurrants and cherries, liquorice and spicy cedar nish.

"Deep purple color. Attractive aromas and flavors of lemon-lavender talc, cassis-apricot jam, and chocolate nuts with a supple, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and an interesting, medium-length roasted nuts, minerals, and cedar mulch finish with chewy, firm tannins and heavy oak. A very chewy oaky cabernet with big flavors and tannins."
