Criminal Minds, Cabernet Merlot
On the run between our South Australian vineyards, we collude with our vines to deliver the goods on ultimate varietal expression.
We’re constantly scheming about rejuvenating our beautiful Murray wetlands too – for which the authorities have already chased us down an award! Enjoy with your last meal or in isolation.
A wine worth breaking out for – the perfect partnership – Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Enjoy this full bodied wine, stuffed with characters of blue berries, plums and blackcurrant, with visitors and saucy helpings.
Are you ready to surrender?
