2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
‘The Captain’ refers to Captain Matthew Flinders who chartered much of the Australian coastline before stumbling across Kangaroo Island in 1802 and named it after the large number of a particular marsupial he saw hopping about (any guesses!?).
Cabernet Sauvignon thrives on Kangaroo Island thanks to the slow even ripening influenced by the cooling sea breezes coupled with our ancient terra rossa soils, producing wines of great character but also finesse. Exhibiting characters of blackcurrant and mulberry with wonderful depth of fruit, subtle oak and an elegant structure, with careful cellaring this wine will age gracefully over the next 8-10 years.
