Our Lion's Roar of Barossa Cabernet comes from old vines planted between Seppeltsfield Road and Marananga in the Barossa, on ancient red soils and rocks ideal for Cabernet encouraging tight-skinned small berries to 'populate or perish'.
Selected bunches were hand picked by family and friends in the second week of April and gently crushed into open top fermenters. After 12 days fermentation the wine was then basket pressed into 30% new French Oak Barriques and aged for 14 months thereafter. Made with minimal winemaking artifact, to capture the essence of the vineyard. This wine will reward further cellaring and decanting.
