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.

The Cigar is a fully engrossing Cabernet Sauvignon with intense, dark berry characters and the most equitable tannins.

Crafted in similar fashion to the flagship Menzies Cabernet, Cigar is vinified to small batch winemaking techniques. The defining character of the source vineyards comes from the soils, classic full bodied red dirt. The grapes are crushed to small static fermenters, temperatures are allowed to peak early at 30C, then given more control around 20C. This ensures good extraction of colour and tannin. Grapes remain on skins for a week, some components are treated to an extended contact. After pressing, the wine completes malolactic, followed by twenty two months maturation in a combination of new and prior use French, American and Hungarian oak hogsheads and barriques.
Crimson red colour. A bouquet that fills the senses, floral high tones of violets and lavender underscored by bass notes of cherries and dark chocolate. The wine is bright with fresh red fruits such as cherries and currants sweeping the palate followed by a melted chocolate texture of soft tannins in complete harmony with the fruit, all the way to a long and lingering finish. The cabernet of choice to accompany charcouterie, antipasto or roast duck.
