Bright purple with bright red hue.Lovely intense highly fragrant nose showcasing fresh cut plum, blueberry and some olive notes. Spicy vanillin oak rounds out the nose without being overbearing.Classical McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon with our trademark style, the wine bursts onto the palate although is smooth as silk. Firm Cabernet Sauvignon tannins sensational fruit weight with highlighted notes of blackberry, blackcurrant, licorice, earth and just enough spice to add another level of complexity. The flavours evolve in the mouth and finish off with intensity typical of our style of wines.

"This is solidly built and sumptuous, showing crème de cassis, spicy oak, subtle tobacco, olive and rich floral aromas, leading to a robust palate that's gorgeously fruited and beautifully layered with fine texture and chalky tannins. Wonderfully harmonious and structured, promising to evolve gracefully. At its best: 2024 to 2039. $50.00. www.songlinesestates.com.au. Sept 2022."

“Songlines” are invisible pathways which criss cross the land all over Australia and stretch across continents and ages. The exceptional wine is named Songlines as it perfectly encapsulates the importance of the land, people and knowledge learned over time and across continents.
2021 growing season had very good winter rainfall. A dry spring followed encouraging healthy growth. The long dryIndian summer that followed meant great concentration of flavours. The conditions continued through autumn with warm conditions which in turn meant disease was not a factor and contributed to natural fermentation. After handpicking whole bunches we allowed the fruit to be cold macerated for 24 hours to ensure brightness and depth of flavour. After this fermentation occurred in small open top fermenters with and we hand plunged over a two-week period. Then we basket pressed and drained into 30% New French oak and 70% older American oak hogshead barrels for a period of 12 months before bottling with minimal fining or filtration to ensure the wines true character was fulfilled.
A wine that will stand the test of time, drinking well now or over Next 10 years.
