Cabernet Sauvignon Swan Hill + King Valley Victoria
Reginald Langdon Buller served in the Australian Navy during both world wars. In 1951 he acquired land at Beverford near Swan Hill for the purpose of expanding his winemaking operations outside of Rutherglen. Following the establishment of new vineyards, a winery and distillery, Buller looked forward to releasing wines under the Beverford label. After many vintages, the mature vines are yielding some of the region's most exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon. Beverford offers great depth, sophistication and weight of fruit in a completely satisfying everyday wine.
Beverford is a sleepy hamlet on the Murray Valley Highway in northeast Victoria, within the fruit growing appellation of Swan Hill. The region is blessed by a sunny climate, good soils and ample water, it enjoys the added security of managed irrigation, an insurance against the dry years. It is an ideal place to grow fruit of all types and has become a major contributor to the Australian winegrowing industry. Production at the ancient Buller family winery has grown significantly over the years with the addition of storage tanks, the most up to date facilities and state of the art refrigeration. Beverford has been treated to a spell of maturation in a combination of tightly grained oak hogsheads. Alcohol 14.0%
