Cellar Door Calender of Events for 2014
Sat 2nd & Sun 3rd August 12 noon– 5pm 2012 Cabernet – The Eagle It is my pleasure to release this very exciting cabernet sauvignon with 20% merlot and 5% cabernet frank. Of the last twenty years that we have been making a cabernet, this is the closest to a Bordeaux style that we have produced. The lower alcohol, the finer tannins, the suave and elegant middle palate; all contributes to a more European style. Black currant is predominant on the nose with wild berries and a hint of vanilla from the new French oak barrels. Despite its young age the wine drinks very well now for those who can’t wait and fair enough I say. Of course the 2012 Eagle will cellar for at least ten years if you wish to put it down in a cool dark place.
At Cellar Door to complement the cabernet we will be offering a warm beef casserole cooked slowly in cabernet this will produce a rich and warming dish served with rustic bread. Of course the cheese platter will also be on offer. We are launching with a special offer for this weekend only: You buy ten bottles and get twelve in your box. Buy five and get six in your pack.

Our Latest News Ben Thomas Reviews the Single Vineyard Shiraz 2011 The Weekly Review 4 ½ / 5 Edgy, cool-climate Shiraz may not be to everyone’s taste, but here’s a good example. Only 150 cases of this wine, which was matured in 50 per cent new oak, were made. Perfumedand funky, cherry, redcurrant, stalky, sappy, meaty aromas are a delight. A silky smooth texture – it’s satin-like – bright acid and fine tannins support sweet and sour flavours of cherry, beetroot, cranberry, loam and spice. For the record, this is a style I love. Food match Chateaubriand

Magic occurs in bottles like it does around people. In this case naturally forming bubbles gather in a bottle of chardonnay forming a bunch of grapes, the molecular expression was stronger than the physical composition.
