Cabernet Sauvignon is a favoured variety in McLaren Vale where the climate is suited to growing fruit that produces rich, full bodied and age-worthy wines.
Sourced from the cooler, sandy slopes of our Tintookie vineyard and the loamy soils of the California Road vineyard, the Dowie Doole Cabernet Sauvignon displays the hallmark traits of McLaren Vale cabernet; dark chocolate, black fruits, lifted aromatics, elegant, fine tannins and the promise of great longevity.

Reviews & Awards:

94 points - Halliday Wine Companion – Outstanding & awarded Special Value Rating

“Individual blocks from estate vineyards fermented and matured for 18 months in French oak (17% new) before blending. Clear varietal character on both bouquet and palate is immediately established, cassis to the fore. The tannins have been polished, and oak was never going to be an issue. A medium-bodied cabernet offering each way drinking - now or later.”  James Halliday
