2019 Riddoch Run Block 1 Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
This outstanding wine is just the second Single Vineyard release from our Riddoch Run estate.
Planted in 1981, Block 1 is our northern-most vineyard at Riddoch Run. The site was chosen for its exceptionally fertile terra rossa soil, sitting just above an ancient chalky limestone layer.
This low-yielding vineyard produces Cabernet Sauvignon of exceptional quality, with rich, smooth flavours.
Picked on the 11th of April, this small selection of fruit in Block 1 was open fermented, basket pressed and allowed to develop in a new French oak barrel for 18 months.
Elegantly powerful, this Block 1 Cabernet Sauvignon is an outstanding representation of cool-climate, terra rossa grown Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.
