This wine is dedicated to our dad, Alexander Murray Forbes. Murray (as he was known to everybody) worked tirelessly planting the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc and trellising my vineyard. Murray’s friendly good humour always came to the fore in the days working in the vineyard.

It has been an exciting discovery to find that these varieties work particularly well in the cooler climate and terrior of the Eden Valley area. It seems to me that this blend provides the richness for the red wine sector that Eden Valley Riesling provides for the whites.

The smooth, complex characters generated by Cabernet Sauvignon are supported by the soft cherry/blackberry characters of the Merlot and finished by the fruit lift from the Cabernet Franc.

The soft but complex bundle of flavours in the mouth with layer upon layer of “berry” flavours makes this a satisfying meal in its own right.

Alcohol 14.5%.
