Morambro Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Padthaway 2002

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Dark purply, almost opaque color with soft vanilla, oak, blackberry and anise aromas. A big, robust wine offering mouthfuls of chewy, smoky fruits with balanced tannins and a spicy finish. Excellent depth and expression of Cabernetandrsquo;s darker side.

Since 1851, five generations of the Bryson family have been involved in agriculture and the unique and fertile land of South Australia. At Morambro Creek, it is our sole objective is to produce the best wines possible from our unique vineyard site. Located in the Padthaway valley which is comprised of rich Terra Rosa soils our estate vineyard benefits from excellent sun exposure producing grapes of optimum flavour, colour and tannin development. The warm summer days are moderated each evening by coastal winds that cool the vines and result in a longer ripening period. This extended period allows for the grape tannins and seed to fully ripen prior to being harvested, thus creating wines that are rich and supple on the palate. Our pursuit of great wine can also be seen in the meticulous management of our vineyard. We strive for low crop yields and small grape bunches of intense flavour, and whilst we employ the latest technology in the vineyard to help us achieve vine balance and reduced vigour, we harvest when the fruit reaches full flavour development.

This is a stunning example of what Austrailia can do with Cabernet. Rich and lush dark berry and cassis flavors drift by and linger on the palate. Soft French oak and smooth tannins round out and give this wine admirable strength without going overboard. A delicious wine that pairs well with meats straight from the barbie.
