Copper Trail Cabernet is an assemblage of the very best fruit Clare Valley has to offer, vineyards are earmarked for their consistency at yielding the most superlative fruit, parcels are isolated on the basis of the most distinctive expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Copper Trail is made to a minimal intervention approach, retaining and enhancing the natural expression of the fruit. Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon must meet the most stringent quality requirements, showing great depth of colour, intense flavours and the finest tannins. Small batch open fermenters are used to keep vineyard parcels separate, allowing the winemaker to maintain and develop the unique characteristics of each vineyard. Some parcels finish fermentation in oak while others are left to macerate on skins for up to fourteen days after completion of fermentation. The wines are gently pressed into a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels to mature for twenty months. Alcohol 13.7%

Annies Lane Quelltaler Shiraz Cabernet 2014
Clare Valley
As far back as the earliest days of Clare Valley viticulture, the locals would help each other during the busy times of season. While she was delivering lunches to workers who were pruning vines one winter, Annie Wayman's horse drawn cart struck difficulty in negotiating the muddy track back to her cottage. From that day on, the track has been affectionately known as Annie's Lane. Quelltaler Watervale is harvested from vineyards bordering the famous Annie's Lane, crafted to a fine balance between the richness of Shiraz and structure of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Watervale is a unique sub region within Clare Valley which produces some of Australia's most magnificent red wines. The soils are comprised of friable red clay loam over a limestone base, allowing for perfect drainage and natural low vigour to achieve high quality grapes displaying richness and ripe, developed tannins. Warm days and mild evenings during the ripening season are conducive to excellent flavour and berry development. Favourable growing conditions are quite consistent, achieving healthy harvests at almost every vintage. Parcels of Cabernet and Shiraz are separately placed into 10t open fermenters for vinification, followed by maturation in traditional large format oak barrels and vats.
 
Bright, dark scarlet colour. Aromatic nose of red and blue berries with supple hints of violets, cinammon and mint. Plums, raspberries, red and blackcurrants, mulberries and spices on the palate are supported by a hint of background cocoa/ vanilla oak and a bed of fine chalky tannins. Ideal with a Portuguese chicken or marinated and char grilled vegetables and meats.

Claymore has achieved wide industry acclaim from peers and the wine show circuit. Disparate lots of parched fruit are high maintenance, but Claymore have never compromised in terms of quality. Unirrigated, the vineyard yields only small volumes of no more than two tonnes per acre, but this is more than compensated by the quality of the final wine. The underlying philosophy is to keep things fun, whilst practising an exacting attention to detail. Bittersweet Symphony has spent in excess of eighteen months maturing in a careful selection of new and prior use, predominantly French oak. Time in barrel gives the opportunity for the naturally pronounced tannins of the Cabernet to soften and integrate.
 
Deep crimson red with purple hues. Bright and lively aromatics of sweet berry, bramble and sour cherry dominate. The oak is subtle and lightly applied, showing as notes of cigar box and spice. All those bright fruits continue in the mouth alongside hints of white pepper and cocoa. The finish is all fresh raspberry rounded out by integrated silken tannin that builds gently, glass after glass.
