Single Vineyard, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, off 20 Year-Old Vines, from Gimblett Gravel Pioneers Stonecroft, and their Legendary Corner Vineyard.


You won't find many 100% Cabernet Sauvignon made these days. The renowned Gimblett Gravels area is your best chance to ripen this thick skinned grape fully. The stored heat of the day from their signature rocky soils, gives them an edge over cooler sub-regions. And as a pioneer of this officially recognised appellation, Stonecroft were among the first to plant there - as close to the old Quarry as possible.

Today their organically farmed Cabernet vines are over twenty years old, and the wine is considered their flagship - using best fruit, best winemaking, and matured for 18 months using their best oak.

It has to be the finest and best value Gimblett Gravels Cabernet at $45.00 ... but with sluggish market conditions it's a veritable bargain at $29.99!


This 2018 Gimblett Gravels Cabernet Sauvignon is a majestic and hedonistic expression of the grape, superbly inky and concentrated with poise and freshness in abundance. Eminently drinkable in its youth as the great reds are, it will be 2028 before she's nearing her peak and another 5-years holding it, if well stored.



Sluggish markets have forced the winery to clear this incredible $45 wine at an unrepeatable price of just $29.99. Grab some today while you can, and ferret it away in your cellar, you'll be so pleased you did in years to come but be quick it's ONLY WHILE STOCKS LAST!

Description

Stonecroft Gimblett Gravels Cabernet Sauvignon is the Flagship Red of Stonecroft... best organic vineyards, winemaking, and oak. Alan Limmer put the Gimblett Gravels on the map, his Stonecroft vineyard these days containing some of the oldest vines in the region. When Alan retired, he passed the torch to Dermot McCollum and Andria Monin. The pair have grasped the mantle with both hands, their opulent reserve range of reds ranking up there with the regions finest and most age-worthy wines annually. This Cabernet Sauvignon is a majestic and hedonistic expression of the grape, superbly inky and concentrated with poise and freshness in abundance. Eminently drinkable in its youth as the great reds are... it will be 2028 before she's nearing her peak and another 5-years holding it... if well stored.

Smells

A heady and indulgent bouquet of black fruits, cassis, tobacco, liquorice and leather.

Tastes

Wonderfully proportioned and generous to a fault, the richness of fruit, fineness of tannin and length of palate all bode extremely well for a long future. The spicy, lightly charry oak and savoury complexities add much to the concentrated fruits and the excellent acid balance delivers freshness to the powerful finish. For all of that though, the wine remains approachable in its youth - an hour or two in the decanter while your roast cooks, should just about do it! Enjoy now to 2030.
