Tasting Notes

Cannon Ball Ridge Limestone Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Intense inky purple. Dark chocolate, blackberry, vanilla and cedar nose. The palate is rich and full with black and red berry fruit dominating the front palate. Hints of Vanilla accompany the ripe and firm tannins on the long finish. 


Crosswords Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Crimson red and bright lush purple. Ripe cassis and blackberry on the nose integrated with red cedar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Wonderful structure and persistence, fine tannins and balanced acidity. The rich flavours of blackberry are evident from start to finish while cinnamon flavour derived from French oak gives another layer of complexity.


Simon Hackett Hills View McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Medium bodied red with intense purple red colour. The nose has a top note of lifted confectionary sweetness. Fresh cherry, ripening strawberry with cassis backing. The palate is smooth and rich, it has good balance throughout with soft accessible tannins lightly dusting the sweet ripe blackberry dominated mid-palate. The American oak sits comfortably towards the back palate.


Bare Necessities Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Deep ruby red with plum hues. Red berry, plums and a touch of savoury pepper along with a slight hint of oak. A lovely fruit driven style with a rich mouth filling palate showing abundant juicy fruit falvours. Red berries and plum characters are evident with more complex capsicum savoury notes, clean tannins and soft touch of oak. 


Evil Incarnate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Deep purple red in colour. Displays blackcurrant, plum and some minty notes with well-integrated cedary oak providing a welcome complexity. Vibrant full throttle blackcurrant flavours the palate is silky smooth with chocolate and mint flavours. The wine continues with great persistence and the finish is surrounded by more complex notes of natural fruit acid balanced by oak, which create a long lingering finish.


Mary Davine Wines Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The vineyard is located on the South Eastern reaches of Eden Valley with an altitude of just over 500 metres – ensuring a long slow ripening season. As one of Australia’s premier viticulture regions we are consistently provided with exceptional fruit of great colour and depth of flavour.


Einzellage Seppeltsfield Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Deep maroon red with bright purple hues. Instantly recognizable varietal characters with lifted aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and vanilla are accompanied by vibrant, dark berry fruits. Full bodied fleshy fruit cuts through, varietal and regional characters abound with blackcurrant, blackberry chocolate and cassis. The palate has a presence only present in high quality fruit from the finest subregion, the structure is faultless we used subtle French oak (2nd and 3rd use) to impart and integrate fruit weight, subtle tannins and its all defined with long length. Cabernet Sauvignon is a long underrated variety in the Barossa and this illustrates how good it is.


Mawson's Limestone Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Deep crimson in colour tending to red. The 2015 Mawson’s exhibits the inviting aromatics of Satsuma plum and blackcurrant. Evocative notes of baking spices such as cinnamon and pimento give a sense of warmth and welcome. There is a real sense of place coming from the dusty and minty notes of the Australian bush. You can taste the Terra Rossa soil in the 2015 Mawson’s Cabernet. The palate is lively and bright with expressive flavours of briar and cassis. The tannins are fine and chalky giving the wine great structure without being aggressive or overbearing. This is a delightful example of Limestone Coast Cabernet. 


Normans Chais Clarendon McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Black squid ink, impenetrable colour. The nose shows dark fruits, dark chocolate and olive notes with rich blackcurrant and violets leading in to a richly flavoured palate. The palate shows elegance and length with dark plum and olive flavours relishing. There is a lot of complexity of flavors and mid palate richness derived from obvious highly concentrated fruit and well-balanced oak usage. The obvious finesse and length along with the finely grained yet expressive tannins in this wine shows it has great cellaring potential and could be a true treasure over the years to come.

Cannon Ball Ridge Limestone Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

At Cannon Ball Ridge our winemaking approach begins with expressing the bright fruit qualities of each varietal and showcasing the distinct characteristics of the Limestone Coast region. Carefully selected grapes from our vineyard near Bordertown were gently pressed and slowly fermented. Aged with American oak for 8 months to allow the fruit aromas to develop and tannins to soften. 


Crosswords Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Fruit was harvested from a single vineyard on the red terra rossa soils in the heart of Coonawarra. Following on from picking we crushed the fruit and allowed fermentation with some whole berries to enable vibrant and pure fruit flavour to shine. The wine was matured in older French oak for 12 months to allow some subtle oak flavour to invade the highly aromatic and concentrated fruit character and also achieve added length and tannin definition then bottled with minimal fining and filtration.


Simon Hackett Hills View McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

The Simon Hackett story goes back well before the establishment of Simon Hackett  Wines. Four generations of the Hackett family followed agricultural pursuits in South Australia. In 1860, Simon’s great uncle attended the esteemed Roseworthy Agricultural College whilst Simon’s father was a graduate in the inaugural Oenology Course at the college in 1938.

Simon grew up in an atmosphere steeped in wine, spending his boyhood in the Barossa Valley alongside his father, who was General Manager and a Director of the giant Barossa Valley Distillery, Tarac International. The family home was situated next to the sprawling Saltram Winery outside Angaston. Given this environment, it was not surprising that Simon, at the age of eighteen, elected to follow a career in winemaking and joined the team at the neighbouring Saltram Winery.

Serving his apprenticeship under the watchful eye of master winemaker, Peter Lehmann, Simon progressed through the ‘Saltram ranks’. In 1970 he completed a vintage in the Hunter Valley Region of New South Wales, before returning to the Saltram Winery for another two years.

In 1973 Simon decided to move to McLaren Vale thus his association with the region began and continues today. Simon’s first vintage in McLaren Vale was at the Southern Vales Co-operative Winery, where he worked with the outstanding winemaking team of Grant Burge and Ian Wilson. After eight years he was appointed Senior Winemaker at Southern Vales Co-operative Winery, now known as Tatachilla Wines.

In 1984, Simon decided to leave Southern Vales Winery and concentrate fully on establishing his own boutique winery situated in McLaren Vale.

Once out on his own Simon quickly re-established his links with the Barossa Valley and now crushes grapes grown in McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and the Adelaide Hills regions of South Australia at his own winery at the gateway to the McLaren Vale vineyards.

Today, Simon Hackett is a boutique wine maker in every sense of the word. He produces a selection of red and white wines under his own, very distinctive label. Having established his own company in late 1984, Simon’s dream was not to create an ‘empire’ but to remain small, producing limited stocks of wine each year for semi private use. Luckily for us he decided to launch the company as a full time project after only a few years. 

The Simon Hackett brand has gone from strength to strength and production is now around 20,000 cases per year. The last few years have seen Simon introduce a stunning limited release Sauvignon Blanc from the Adelaide Hills.

Simon’s winery, originally a disused cellar on a hill overlooking the beautiful McLaren Vale, is situated on the last rise as you enter the McLaren Vale region from Adelaide, easily visible and just off Budgens Road. The cellar door is light, bright and magnificently appointed with a long arched veranda looking out over the surrounding vineyards and countryside.


Bare Necessities Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

The grapes for this wine were picked in the early hours of the morning from select vineyards across Victoria to ensure temperatures were as cool as possible. Crushed to rotary fermenters the grapes were then allowed to macerate for 2 days before inoculation and fermentation.  Pressed off skins 7 days later and allowed to go through the second malolactic fermentation. The wine has then had minimal handling prior to filtration for bottling.


Evil Incarnate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Select parcels of fruit were selected due to their intense fruit flavour and then were picked, transported to winery, crushed immediately. The skin and juice mix is allowed to warm naturally over several days after which it begins fermentation. Fermentation is held cool which helps to retain bright primary fruit characters in the wine. Following ferment, the wines are carefully pressed, separating them from the skins. The wine is then run down to oak barrels for maturation, before being blended, filtered and then finally bottled.

A wine which will continue to evolve in bottle over the next 5 or so years.


Mary Davine Wines Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Planted in 1970 (48 years ago) Only local knowledge, a firm hand-shake deal and an outrageous cash exchange allowed us to secure a small parcel this sumptuous fruit. And even then I have to keep it secret. If the other producers find out the vineyard owner will be in trouble and that the end of the fruit.

The unique micro-climate ensures long slow flavour development. Delivering an intensity of concentration and length rarely found anywhere else in the Barossa.

The fruit is harvested in the cool of the night to retain flavour and freshness before destemming and inoculation with specific rare yeast – a Italian strain that specifically ferments at cool temperatures.

It only serves to enhance the natural fruit flavours.

The ferments are undertaken in traditional 1 ton open fermenters for 8 days, each day the fruit is hand plunged pushing the skins under the fermenting juice to assist in great colour and flavour development of the wine. Once a day the juice is drained from the fermenter and then returned over the skins. With approximately 2 Baume the fermenting wine is drained from the fermenter and the skins basket pressed by hand. Total extraction is limited to a maximum of 500 litres per ton – extremely lower compared to an industry average of 750 litres per ton.

The fermenting wine is gravity transferred into a mixture of new and 3 year old French and American hogsheads to complete primary fermentation and malolactic fermentation. Upon completion the wine is racked and returned to mature for a minimum period of 21 months.


Einzellage Seppeltsfield Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Sourced From One Of Barossa Valleys Most Revered Growers from a single vineyard high in the Western Barossa sub region of Seppeltsfield. Fruit was picked in early hour s of morning when temperatures were at their lowest for the day to ensure fruit remained crisp whilst being transported to winery. The grapes were destalked and placed uncrushed into small stainless steel open top fermenters. A cultured yeast was used to start fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending 7 days on skins at 26 degrees. The skins we gently pressed and we aged wine in 2nd and 3rd use French barriques to impart a small amount of oak but retain fleshy fruit flavours then bottled with minimal filtration and no fining.


Mawson's Limestone Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Wrattonbully is situated 300km south east of Adelaide and 30km north of Coonawarra. The average summer temperatures are ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Our vineyards are on gentle slopes with rows running predominantly east-west.
The soils are well drained, and are mainly classic terra rossa of brown earth over limestone. Quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon country. 

Our aim is to produce sustainable crops of intensely flavoured grapes by setting moderate crop levels and encouraging canopy growth. The wines are made in static and rotary fermenters that encourage good colour and fruit expression. The wine was matured using predominantly French oak before final blending and bottling. 

Good rains in early winter replenished the soil’s moisture levels. The latter part of 2014 continued warm without being overly hot. These relatively mild conditions encouraged healthy vine growth. Top-up rains arrived across some parts of South Australia in January which freshened the vineyards for that final ripening period through to harvest. The resulting wine is fruit driven with structure and presence. 


Normans Chais Clarendon McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Hand picked then fermented in small stainless steel fermentors to maintain strong fruit flavor from skins. The wine then went into American and French oak barrels for the remainder of ferment where it spent an extended period of time to allow full flavor development and fruit and oak to balance and compliment each other.
