2002 Barnadown Run Heathcote Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2002 Cabernet offers classic aromas of cassis, tobacco leaf, licorice and a toasty oak (about 85% French and 15% American is used). This attractive medium to full bodied 2002 exhibits excellent depth as well as a pure blackcurrant character with a layered texture. Drink it over the next six to eight years.

The voluptuous 2003 Henry Bennett’s Voluptuary Shiraz/Cabernet/Malbec (60%, 25%, and 15% respectively) was aged in French oak for 17 months. Made in a meaty, opulent style, it offers aromas of roasted herbs, grilled meats, blackberries, cherries, and spice. This elegant, chewy, undeniably Australian red should be consumed over the next 6-8 years.

Crunchy ripe blueberry fruit, with fine delineation and very attractive allspice aromas; the palate is incredibly bright, with ample levels of ripe fruit, spice, a touch of minerally complexity and a long fleshy finish; big, but very well balanced. Cork. 15% alc.

Strong deep colour; not bottled until Nov '10, the long time in oak fully justified; rich black fruits have an undertone of spice, licorice and cedar, the tannins ripe and round. Best yet, and will cellar well. To 2030.

2008 Barnadown Run Heathcote Cabernet Sauvignon

Good colour for age; a plush and velvety palate where layers of blackcurrant, plum and mint are balanced by lively acidity on the finish, which provides significant extra lenght to the palate.
