One of Australia's longest continuously operating purveyors of fine wine, Taylor Ferguson can trace their origins back to establishment circa 1898. Today, the Taylor Ferguson team can draw fruit from a substantial catalogue of the choicest vineyards from which to construct the most impressive wines. Parcels of grapes from eminent sites on the Terra rossa
soils of Wrattonbully have been assembled into a splendid Cabernet Sauvignon, featuring distinctive regional varietal expressions, vigorous fruit characters and firm, supporting tannins.
After each harvest, a search begins for the best grapes from which to make the next vintage. The selection process is diligent and strict. Parcels of fruit which can display the high standards required for inclusion, selected on the basis of vibrant flavour profiles and exemplary varietal expression, become the foundation for Taylor Ferguson. Each vintage brings submissions, this year provided the team with parcels of outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon harvested from good vineyards at Wrattonbully. The batches are sorted, crushed and inoculated before being treated to a regimen of modern and traditional vinification techniques in a mix of fermenters, followed by a spell of maturation under finely coopered oaks.

A generous palate, full of berry flavours, mint and dark chocolate complexity rounded out by fine tannins, leading onto a lingering, well balanced finish. To accompany rare venison or rosemary lamb.
