This Pride of the Fleurieu Cabernet was grown in the family’s pride and joy, overlooking the Finniss River wetlands, Tony Brooks and Prof. Barbara Santich’s dry-grown ‘Stranger’s Reach Vineyard’ cooled by the Great Southern Ocean and Lake Alexandrina where low rainfall and deep alluvial soils encourage Cabernet to ‘populate or perish’.

Selected bunches were hand picked by family and friends in the last week of March and gently crushed into open top fermenters. After 8 days fermentation the wine was then basket pressed into some new but predominately older French Oak Barriques for 18 months maturation and then bottled without filtration or fining, to capture the essence of the vineyard and will reward cellaring and decanting.
