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.

This innocuous, nearly insipid wine shows dilution, some weedy cherry and cola notes, and a light-bodied, very short finish. Drink it up. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2003 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow 750ml

Of the three outstanding new Cabernets from Diamond Creek this particular bottling is the most backward and slow-to-unfold of the bunch. With dense highly extracted curranty fruit as its major theme it slowly opens to exhibit finely placed oak rich loamy highlights and touches of stony soil in its expansive nose. Its youthful deeply filled convincingly complex flavors follow suit and are underpinned by puckery tannins that need some time to resolve. This is not a wine for drinking anytime soon but it has all the right pieces in all the right places to ensure that an exceptional wine will emerge in time. Connoisseurs Guide.

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.
