The Range

These special ‘vintage’ label wines have been made in the original winery deep inside the castle using handcrafted techniques including gentle basket pressing. This label was originally released to celebrate the 150th anniversary of All Saints Estate and highlights the limited availability of these very special wines.

The Wine

A traditional blend made of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%). The colour is a vibrant dark red with a bright purple hue. A rich and generous wine, the Merlot adds lovely soft plummy fruit to the mid-palate, to complement the dark berry Cabernet notes and classic structural tannin on the finish in balance with the French oak. It finishes long and dry with fine sandy tannins that are well integrated.

Variety

Cabernet Sauvignon is a noble grape variety, one that forms the basis of many of the great wines of Bordeaux, France. Merlot also originally from the Bordeaux region of France is traditionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon in order to flesh out the blend.

Winemaking

The two varieties were picked and fermented separately in the old open concrete tanks at the castle. During fermentation they were hand plunged to extract the colour and tannins from the must, then gently pressed out in our old basket press. The parcels were aged for 15 months in a combination of 2-4 yr old premium French oak prior to blending and bottling.

Food Matching

This wine has lovely fruit and structural soft tannin so perfectly pink roasted Rutherglen lamb with classic vegetables and gravy would match well.

Cellaring Potential

With its combination of fine tannins and great depth of fruit, this wine will age well. It can be enjoyed now with all its vibrant flavours, for up to 8-10 years to develop more complexity.

"A 60/40% blend. Has more freshness and brightness than most from the region, with cassis in the driver's seat, the tannins ripe and fine."
