The sensational vintages of St John's Road were generations in the making, the fruit of grand old vineyards and the progeny of families which have tilled Barossa soil since early settlement. The landed gentry along St John's Road represent a heritage of the most distinguished names in Australian viticulture, Lehmann and Lienert, Zander, Kalleske and Schutz. With each vintage, they earmark small parcels of the most exceptional Barossa fruit, to be treated to a course of traditional open ferments and term of age in the finest French oak. Bearing such pious Lutheran monikers as Prayer Garden and Resurrection Vineyard, these sacred sites are planted to some of the oldest clones in the world. St John's Road, you'll be drinking the very.. Brought to you by barossa born & bred»

Fraser Gallop Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot Cabernet Franc Malbec Merlot Margaret River Western Australia
Inspired by the great Crus of Bordeaux, the aim is to build complexity within a single vineyard wine, to allow the fruit to shine, as complemented by the finest oak, a Cabernet of profound structure, polish and finesse. The inclusion of small portions Merlot and Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, are treated to a regimen of cutting edge and old world vinification techniques. Fraser Gallop's superlative Cabernet vines are the highly regarded Houghton clone, sourced off unirrigated blocks yielding fruit with a massive concentration of flavours.

Fruit is hand picked, destemmed with minimal crushing and chilled to 8C for three days cold soak in closed fermenters. The wine was pumped over daily using a turbopiguer, allowing better homogenisation and extraction without damaging the berries. One batch is pressed off skins early to complete fermentation in oak, another is pressed off just after fermentation, a further component is pressed off just after fermentation and treated to macro oxidation for five days, another is left on skins for thirty five days. Each technique contributes something unique. The wines are transferred to French oak for malolactic and racked twice over the next year and a half, topped up every four weeks before assemblage.
Deep crimson colour with rich hues. Fraser Gallop shows a remarkable complex array of aromas of black cherry, dark fruits, bitter chocolate, forest floor earthiness and pomegranate molasses richness. Layers and layers of flavour provide for a seamless palate. Tannins are quite fine and chalky, providing great structure for aging. A wine of richness and elegance.
