Cabernet Sauvignon Henty Victoria
The vines at Crawford River were planted from the ground up, with a view to realizing minimal harvests of world class fruit. The auspicious site was originally used for grazing, established to viticulture in 1975, it was generations of cattle and sheep which prepared the land for winegrowing. A rare confluence of soils, limestones, friable basalts and ancient alluvials, form a terroir that's heaven sent for Cabernet Sauvignon. Finely boned, muscular and statuesque, a flagship Victorian effort to rival her siblings from the most regal Cabernet appellations in the world.
Deep scarlet red. Blackberries, mulberry and black cherry nose, bay leaf and allspice. Richly textured and layered, elegant, fine tannins in support of a densely structured wine. Evenly balanced throughout, the interplay between fine oak, fruit and spice continue to open in the glass, with balanced acidity lending excellent length and persistence.
