Diamond Creek Vineyards Diamond Creek-Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill Microclimate 2 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Volcanic Hill is the longest lived of our wines. Our winemaker describes these wines as “full bodied, loaded with intense ripe berry fruit, cassis, violets and a smoky richness, finishing with good length and firm tannins.”

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.

...Floral aromas of black cherry, mint and slightly raw oak. Juicy but rather folded in on itself; shows subtle, slightly inky flavors of red and black berries and lead pencil. Has a penetrating sweetness. Broad tannins nicely cover the entire palate... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1999 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill 750ml
