Cherry, blackberry, chocolate and mint
This Cabernet clone CW44, displays ripe fruit characters of cherry and blackberry with a hint of chocolate and mint. This wine is a good example for a ripe cabernet in a cool climate. The smooth clean palate has long, mouth-filling flavours. This is a great food wine. Partner it with the lamb dish of your choice or a char-grilled steak. This wine may be cellared for 8 to 10 years.
Cargo Road Vineyard Established 1983 at 860 metres on the sheltered northern slopes of Mount Canobolas near Orange NSW. The vineyard is planted on deep red basalt soils allowing it to be unirrigated. Cargo Road Wines are all estate grown. We have believed in sustainability since 1983 and took this further with the introduction of Holistic Management in 2013 taking a regenerative approach to Viticulture and Agriculture, as we only custodians of the land.
