2019 Talus Cabernet Sauvignon


Our vineyard lies peacefully nestled in the arms of its namesake, the 400-million-year-old granite massif; Mount Langi Ghiran. Over time, the forces of Mother Nature have cast rock fragments to the base of the mountain creating a formation we know as talus. The Talus range is an expression of the unique soils at Mount Langi Ghiran, reflecting our intimate knowledge of vine, soil and mountain.

Professional Reviews

Hand-picked fruit in small open-top fermenters with natural yeasts. Pressed to tank, transferred to oak for mlf and 18 months maturation in French barriques (66% new). For those who haven’t as yet discovered the beauty of Grampians cabernet sauvignon, here is an ideal opportunity. A wine of poise and elegance that absorbs 66% new oak. A rich embroidery of flavours, from cassis, bush mint and leafy cabernet characters and licorice through to dusty cacao, nicely interspersed with savoury oak, weaves a wonderful wine.
