Made for celebrations, a 1.5L magnum of 2019 DJ Cabernet packaged in custom gift cylinder.

DJ is a man of few words; as straight up and down as the prized rows of vines he cares for. His passion for grape growing is only exceeded by his passion for his family and sport (especially sport!). This reserve Cabernet is a deserving testament to him; to his passion, his grit, his down-right stubbornness, and his relentless efforts to grow the best fruit possible.

AROMA
Blue plum, cassis, anise and coffee grinds. Choc mint biscuits and charred rosemary.
PALATE
Pop a lamb roast in the oven quick! Mint jelly, juicy ribena currants, anise, stewed cherries and dusty tannins to round out the palate. Sweet blue fruits, chocolate licorice and toast, plenty of structure and aging potential for those who have the patience to wait, but also a cracking drink now!
WINE & VINTAGE

2019 was one of the hottest summers on record, and the dry season resulted in a 30% reduction in our crops.

WHAT THE WRITERS HAVE TO SAY

James Halliday Wine Companion

Machine-harvested, berry-sorted, light crushing, 3 days cold soak, wild-fermented, the fermentation finished in French hogsheads (35% new). Super-generous, super-regional, with lashings of dark chocolate and juicy cassis fruit, the tannins generous but supple.
