The Potawurutj Aborigines named this place Padthaway meaning “Good Water”
Wine of The Month July 2017
2014 Oparina Padthaway Cab/Shiraz
For this 2014 Cabernet Shiraz, parcels of fruit were meticulously selected and handpicked from our premium producing Shiraz and Cabernet vines before crushing into open fermenters.
The use of 100% natural ferments has enhanced the flavours to create a unique flavour combination of these two varieties.
Basket pressed and matured in new French Oak for 18 months, it consists of 60% Cabernet, 40% Shiraz.
Dark purple/crimson hue, deep intensity. Blackcurrant and mulberry fruit and dark chocolate flavours, a round mouth feel and lingering tannins, with a firm, tight, savoury finish.
