2014 Blocks Road Cabernet Sauvignon

Our Block's Road cuvee is a careful blend of two 43 year old vineyards located in the Leasingham sub region of the valley.

With the cool nights, warm days and mostly dry conditions perfect in slowing down the ripening process, elevating the distinctive regional fruit characters, varietal complexity and elegant tannin structures.

Traditional vinification methods, including basket pressing, open fermentation and ageing in a combination of new and seasoned French oak casks, furthering the wines interest and cellaring potential.

Wine Review
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Blocks Road is scented of black currant pastilles, blackberry pie and menthol with hints of bay leaves and pencil shavings. The medium-bodied palate delivers a great intensity of black fruit and cedary flavors supported by firm, grainy tannins and a lively backbone, finishing with hints of dried herbs.

"He demonstrates a brilliant touch with Riesling as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The cuvees produced under the 'Killerman's Run' label all represent terrific bargains"
