Cabernet Sauvignon Grampians Victoria
Fallen Giants is a reference to local folklore, a canon of indigenous myths about how the Grampians were formed by colossal birds as they struggled for primacy. The auspicious vineyard at Halls Gap contains a superior block of old Cabernet vines which yield less than a tonne and a half per acre. Wrought through the full tradition of old world winemaking techniques, a magnificent construct of Cabernet Sauvignon with imposing ebony fruit characters and dauntless, epic tannins, treat your Fallen Giants to a brew of ox cheek and kipflers, trotters and truffled red wine Jus.
Opaquely dark purple red. Black cherry, boysenberries and cassis, varietal leaf, briar and olive notes. Immense concentration on the well proportioned, linear palate, black currants, loganberries and savoury reductions, supported by august tannins and a framework of flattering, amiable oak, its muscular profile lingers long on a finish of sour plum piquancy and dulcet, perfumed dark berry fruits.
