The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most profoundly structured, intensely focused, yet softly spoken range of wines.

The twelve hectare Neilson's Block was one of the original John Riddoch selections, in true Coonawarra fashion it was exploited as a dairy farm until the planting of rootstock in 1975. Extensive canopy renovation has envigorated the vines and revitalised the quality of harvest. Consistently producing some of Coonawarra's best Cabernet, the cream of crop is earmarked for Ravenswood. Once in the winery the utmost care is taken to preserve the unique and exquisite fruit characters which are its raison d'ĂȘtre. The fruit begins vinification in fermenters before being filled to completely new Tarandsaud & Seguin Moreau French oak barriques for completion and eighteen months maturation.
Dense crimson with purple hues at the rim. Lifted, penetrating aromas of blackcurrant and plums, cassis and black olive. A wine of genuine class with intense flavours of dark berry fruits and hints of dried herbs, menthol and chocolate oak, over integrated and soft, fine grained tannins that ensure the wine is approachable in its youth, the track suggests it cellars exceptionally well. Complex and concentrated, best enjoyed with fine gourmandise.
