When the Taylor family established their wine business back in 1969, they decided to create a proper 'old world' style estate in the Clare Valley. That's where the name 'Estate' comes from. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz were the very first wines released and are the heart and soul of the business.

The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Taylor family estate in the Clare Valley. In the growing season leading up to vintage 2016 Mother Nature saw fit to dole out just the right amount of water at just the right time for maximum positive impact on the vine's health and importantly, the quality of the fruit produced. Once harvested, the fruit was quickly transferred to the winery and gently de-stemmed. Primary fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks and then the grapes were pressed using a pneumatic bag press with some pressings returned to add weight and texture to the wine. The wine was then transferred to 10% French oak and the remainder in water bent American oak barrels for secondary, malolactic fermentation. The wine was then blended and returned to American oak for maturation prior to fining, minimal filtration and then bottling.

This wine has an enticing, lifted aroma of plum, blackcurrant and dark cherry fruits along with a bouquet of subtle mocha and a touch of oak derived spice.The palate is plump & generous with ripe fruit characters of plum and blackberry. Mocha coffee and subtle spice from oak maturation balance the fruit flavours. The wine is medium to full-bodied with a fleshy mid-palate and supple tannin structure. It is a well balanced wine with great texture, good length and enjoyable fruit on the finish.
