Sauvignon has been grown in the Hunter Valley for over one hundred years. It is a difficult grape to grow in this region as the early rains, and extreme heat makes some vintages a real challenge. But when the vintage is kind, we can turn out some wonderfully full-bodied savory wines. Big fruit and big tannins give these wines great cellaring potential.
This "CEO" Cabernet Sauvignon is a seamless wine from a brilliant vintage. A lovely blend of cassis, dark cherry, and smoky tones. Fine tannins and judicious use of oak make this a keeper. It's full-bodied with a medium level of acidity that is fantastic for drinking with food.
The 2017 CEO Cabernet Sauvignon has been rated with 92 points in the latest James Halliday Wine Companion 2021 with a silver ribbon.
