Sommelier's Notes

The fruit for the Cabernet and Merlot is sourced from our own vineyards in Bethany and neighbouring vineyards along the Barossa foothills. The fruit picked from our Bethany Vineyards is from old vines of up to 40 years old which are very low yielding and produce fruit of great intensity and flavour. 


A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (43%) and a touch of Cabernet Franc (2%) is a classic Bordeaux combination so enjoyed by wine lovers all over the world. The fruit for this wine was predominantly sourced from estate grown vineyards in the village of Bethany, the heart of Bethany Wines. The resulting wine shows bright fruit characters combined with a fresh and persistent framework of fine grained tannins. It demonstrates the finesses and elegance possible with grapes grown on the Eastern edge of the Barossa Ranges.


Each parcel was individually fermented with a high percentage of whole berry inclusion to maximise fruit expression. Fermentation lasted 7-10 days depending on the parcel and twice daily hand pump-overs or irrigations ensured a gentle extraction of tannin, flavour and colour. At the end of maceration the wine was pressed to a combination of seasoned and new (10%) French oak to mature for 12 months.
