Established in 1997, Diamond Creek Estate is an award winning family owned and operated vineyard and olive grove. Diamond Creek Estate is situated on the northern slopes of Mittagong, around 120 kms south of Sydney, in the Southern Highlands region of New South Wales. The property for many years was dairy country, enjoys rich basalt soil, northern sun and although at an altitude of 680 metres, it has an unique topography, which leaves it relatively immune from frost. This creates an ideal microclimate for cultivating premium quality, cool climate wine grapes and the finest olives for extra virgin olive oil. The vineyard occupies around 15 acres and a similar area is dedicated to olive trees. The vines are subject to intensive management for improvement, hand pruned and leaf-plucked as required. They are personally tended, cropped for optimised yields to produce premium quality cool climate wine grapes. Diamond Creek Estate Wines are produced only from estate grown grapes. The region, although the newest recognized geographical indication, is fast being acknowledged as a premium cool climate area and this is consistent with our objective to produce first class wines that will compete with any in Australia and overseas.

Firm intense and concentrated with vibrant currant black cherry sage and cedary oak. Thick layers of fruit and firm earthy tannins bode well for aging though the tannins clamp down on the finish. Best from 2007 through 2014. 498 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator.

The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace (7 acres) boasts a pure nose of smoky creme de cassis and burning embers. Tightly knit in the mouth, with sweet fruit, a hint of vanilla, and the oak kept well in the background, it possesses medium to ful... Robert Parker.

From the 5-acre Gravelly Meadow Vineyard, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon (the 30th vintage of this wine) exhibits a deep ruby/purple color in addition to a smoky, Graves-like nose of earth, hot rocks, and sweet currant and cherry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, with undeniable elegance and sweet, pure fruit, this beauty benefits immensely from 60 minutes of aeration. Spicy, impressively concentrated, and long, it can be approached now, but promises to age nicely for 10-15 years.
