Corryton Park produced some purely varietal cabernet wines, deep plum in colour and richly perfumed with aromas of blackcurrant, confectionary spearmint leaves, cedar wood characters and woody spice with underlying aromas of pine needle, vanilla and subtle char with hints of licorice and new leather. The palate is surprisingly soft for cabernet; a fleshy, juicy cabernet with refined tannins and acidity.
95 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"Machine-harvested, crushed and destemmed, open-fermented, 6-8 days on skins, wild and cultured yeast, matured in French hogsheads (65% new) for 18 months, 5% merlot blended in. All handed on a plate ex the vintage, the vineyard, and the courage to use this amount of new French oak, and no attempt to over-extract."
At the Southern end of the Barossa near Mount Crawford, there is a magnificent property established over 150 years ago, the entrance marked by two grand stone pillars - Corryton Park. Corryton park is one of the highest and coolest sites in the Barossa region. It provides perfect conditions for growing first class cabernet with great finesse, depth and complexity. In the pursuit of excellence in Cabernet, Grant Burge purchased the property in 1999.
The Corryton Park vineyards are always picked as small, separate parcels which are fermented separately to highlight the unique variations between different clonal plantings and micro-climates across the sites. After primary fermentation, the wines are evaluated and select parcels then remain on skins for up to 30 days of extended maceration. Which results in a richness of palate flavours and softens the tannins. After pressing and racking the wine was matured in French oak hogsheads for a minimum of 18 months.
