The 95 Block sub-section of the estate 'Abbey' vineyard is located west of the cellars and planted with Reynell clone Cabernet Sauvignon. These vines are original cuttings from Bordeaux, brought to Coonawarra before they were lost to France due to Phylloxera in the late 1800's. The 95 Block also contains four rows of Petit Verdot, which was co-fermented with the Cabernet Sauvignon following the exceptional 2015 vintage.
"Classic cassis and cedar on the nose, with a touch of peppermint and underpinned by a rich seam of dark, black fruits, black coffee and dark chocolate. The palate is well integrated, harmonious and balanced. Blackcurrant and espresso flavour is wrapped up by fine tannins and carried all the way to the finish. Lovely line and length. Coonawarra at its best."
