A few years ago, Managing Director Paul, was lucky enough to taste some 1953 Orlando Barossa Cabernet that had been hanging around in a corner of a cellar for all of that time. And, oh what a wine it was, inspiring the Soul Growers to make a Cabernet that would live and develop in a Cellar for a long time and reward those that love to invest time and patience into their wines. The Soul Growers trust that this wine will provide you with a soulful "Oh, what a wine" experience many years in the future.
This Cabernet demonstrates that there is more to the Barossa than just Shiraz. The fruit was sourced from family vineyards largely on the rich soils along the banks of the Para River. Cabernet is picked on richness and depth of flavour then the best barrels are selected from three different vineyards. Open fermented for 7 days then basket press to oak for 21 months 100% French oak.
This elegant Cabernet is drinking beautifully now but will reward those who let it dwell in their cellar beyond ten years.
