Authentic, up-front Cabernet nose, with hints of dried herbs and smoked meats.

A wine of power and elegance. The cooler climate Eden Valley components provide the welcomed added elements of floral and spice. Forest fruits and tobacco are prominent with a firm tannin backbone, and lingering finish.

Herbert Sutcliffe and Jack Hobbs. Quite simply, the two men formed the best opening pair in the history of Test cricket. They amassed 3249 runs in only 38 innings with 15 century stands at a whopping average of 87.81. Individually they rank as two of the greatest batsmen in history, but together they were unassailable. Similarly, when blending our Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon, we look for line and length in every barrel; lines of tannin and structure, and length of fruit flavour.

A somewhat testing 2014 vintage put vines, growers and winemakers under duress, but fortunately the resilient Cabernet Sauvignon grape was unperturbed and chose to thrive. Fruit for the 2014 Line and Length was sourced from the Stonewell region of the Barossa Valley, an area that is also known for it’s resilience; possessing weathered red brown ironstone soils producing low-yielding vines and berries with intensity of flavour. A component from Phil Lehmann’s vineyard, in Eden Valley, was also used in the assemblage to add fragrance and finesse to the final blend.

Following picking, in the second week of March, grapes were small batch fermented in a combination of open and closed static fermenters. Skin contact was conducted under cool conditions over the course of ten days, with pump overs for maceration. Post malolactic fermentation, maturation was carried out in a mix of new and old French Hogsheads barrels for 13 months.

Serve with chargrilled fillet mignon with wholegrain mustard.
