Lansdowne Wines Cabernet Sauvignon boasts aromas of cassis and blackberries with a vibrant palate of liquorice fruit, bell pepper and freshly turned earth. Whole berries, open top fermented and left on skins for 13 days. Maturation in old French oak for eight months.
Lansdowne Vineyard is one of the slowest ripening sites in the Adelaide Hills. It sits at 350 meters in the Forreston Valley and has a Mediterranean climate with cold wet winters, warm dry summers and endless autumns. Their day-night temperature range is a result of early sunsets and cool air pooled in the valley at night – a combination key to creating flavour complexity by slowing down the ripening process. They’ve been tending to our vineyard since 2002 and are continuously working with new varieties and practices to understand more about their terroir.
