TASTING NOTE

This is a classic and very elegant blend of Bordeaux grape varietals (58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 10% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Franc). It is made from premium selected fruit and aged in old and new French oak, giving both intensity and a classical nature. Brooding black fruit and spicy oak give pleasure now but this wine has the potential to age over the next 5 to 10 years.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

In 1851 this was the first winery to be established in the Clare Valley. 100 acres of land was purchased by Austrian Jesuit immigrants and named after the Seven Hills of Rome. Initially producing sacramental wine for the community, over time the vineyards grew and so did the wine production. Now there are 72 ha of vineyards planted with 20 different varietals. The average age of the vines is 75 years and at an altitude of 400 metres means the vines will be cool during the summer months. There have been only seven Jesuit winemakers at Sevenhills and the current head winemaker, Brother John May even at 80, still works closely with the team to produce rich and concentrated wines. In 2006, Sevenhills appointed their first lay winemaker, Liz Heidenreich, to the team.
