Mike Press personally planted Cabernet Sauvignon vines on his Adelaide Hills property in 1998, they are all closely managed by the Press family and friends, before being harvested carefully by hand at vintage time. The fruit of his coddled homestead vineyard made history in 2006 when it made the final cut of Australia's most prestigious accolade, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy, as an unlabelled cleanskin wine. Parcels of Reynella and CW44 clones Cabernet Sauvignon are treated to a traditional vinification before being filled to a selection of French oak hogsheads for an extended term of maturation.
Bright scarlet purple colour. The nose combines blackcurrant fruit over subtle oak, complexed by varietal Cabernet capsicum and coffee bean notes. Ripe blackberry fruit palate, currant and red cherry flavours, the savouryness of olive and tobacco.
