The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. 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. Powerful yet disciplined Cabernet, generously proportioned Malbec, august Chardonnay and mesmerising Riesling, all representing essential drinking and salient value, for every learned west coast gourmande in the..

The Jamiesons Run vineyards are endowed with outcrops of red soil that sit above a hard layer of limestone, unique terrains which encourage the development of intense characters in the fruit. Cabernet is harvested from low yielding vines up to thirty years of age. Single wire trellising and cooler conditions ensure the grapes maintain good varietal character and exceptional depth of flavour. Following the crush, fruit is treated to a gentle, controlled vinification and twice daily pumpovers in a combination of rotary and static fermenters to extract the rich Cabernet flavours. Upon completion, components are matured for up to a year under a selection of French and American oak prior to final assemblage.
Deep garnet red. Warm ripe lifted aromas of mulberry, cherry jam, choc-mint and mocha with a hint of light tobacco and fine cedary oak. Well defined lifted aromas. Medium bodied, finely structured palate showing good regional dark mulberry, cherry and black currant leaf. Good fruit flavours over layers of dark fruit cake, choc-mint and mocha oak. Fine slightly dusty savoury tannins blend together to contribute to the soft velvety textured palate.
