Diamond Creek Gravelly Meadow Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Our second coolest microclimate is our five-acre Gravelly Meadow vineyard. Originally a prehistoric river bed, this stony, gravelly soil drains rapidly and the vines struggle for moisture. Gravelly Meadow is our lowest yielding vineyard. The wines are described as “earthy, cedary, jammy and ripe blackberry with a spicy expansive finish.”

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.

"From the 5-acre Gravelly Meadow Vineyard, the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon 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

Vintage: 1991 09/22/2010

The 1991 Gravelly Meadow, is the most backward of the 1991s, with less evolution in its attractive, spicy, earthy, elegant nose. Its medium-bodied flavors exhibit moderate tannins and clean, earthy, ripe, sweet fruit. It should be at its best in 2-... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1991 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow 750ml
