Product Description


    “One of the best on this excellent line of cabernets from these guys. Savoury and black fruits... tweak the rest. Superb little value-for money cabernet from this great name in McLaren Vale. Has a leafy blackcurrant aroma with a little cedary savoury oak. It's balanced with super fruit concentration and light dusty tannin in support. A wine that's made for drinking over the next few years”. 93 Points Ray Jordan The West Australian “There's nothing funny about this alluring, perfumed wine, with cassis liqueur, pencil, mint and dark chocolate aromas. Smooth and supple in the mouth, flavours of plum, black berry, blackcurrant are neatly balanced with energetic acid and fine, sandy tannins. A burst of lengthy black berry flavours finishes this off nicely” 5 Stars Ben Thomas The Weekly Review The High Trellis vineyard was planted in the late 19th century and received its nickname because in the 1890’s its vines were the first at d’Arenberg to be trained above knee height. Over the past four decades, Cabernet Sauvignon from the High Trellis vineyard has been released under the d’Arenberg label to consistent critical acclaim. Indeed the first to be exhibited, won the coveted Jimmy Watson trophy at the 1969 Melbourne Wine Show, something d’Arry Osborn constantly reminds his son and fourth generation winemaker, Chester Osborn. The nose is lifted and fresh, ripe blueberries and cassis mingle with violets and leafy aromatics. There’s a touch of spicy oak adding complexity to the typical d’Arenberg soulful earthiness. The palate is still tightly woven with precise Cabernet tannins all sinewy and finely textured. Earthy grip mingles with minerals, graphite and hints of potpourri. The palate is fresh and lively, the acid and tannin backbones working well together with a licorice core. Like all d’Arenberg wines, decanting will help this wine show its best, it will age gracefully for up to ten years if cellared carefully.
