Against a backdrop of historic winery buildings and ancient vines, watered by a crystal clear spring fed stream called Honeysuckle Creek, the Taylor family handcraft one of Australia's most eminent Cabernet wines. Since 1892, St. Andrews Terra rossa soils have produced wines of rare excellence, the original winery still stands today. Grapes are harvested from Blocks A60, A70 and A10 of the St Andrews Vineyard, quickly and gently de-stemmed, keeping berries intact. Following a cold soak and fermentation, St Andrew is pressed to a high proportion of new prestige French oak barrels for completion of malolactic, rack and returned for eighteen months maturation.
Dark red with a faint brick red hue to the edge. Bold lifted varietal aromas of cassis, ripe black cherry and aniseed. These are matched with lashings of chocolate, cedar and cinnamon from the French oak maturation. A concentrated wine with a fleshy palate and vibrant fruit flavours of cassis and blackcurrant. Generous and beautifully ripened yet retains the poise and elegance of great Cabernet Sauvignon.
