2022 Single Vineyard Big Bully Cabernet Sauvignon


The 2022 vintage was the second in a long and cool series of seasons at our vineyard in Wrattonbully. Good spring rainfall followed by moderate conditions led to long hang times and as a result wines of concentrated flavours and elegant structures.


Our Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on well-drained fertile red clays over limestone located in the region of Wrattonbully, S.A. The crop yields are relatively low, producing great concentration of fruit flavour.


Harvested in the cool of night before undergoing a cold soak through transportation to the Hunter Valley winery. The wine was fermented in closed fermentation tanks to retain a higher alcohol that helps drive this brute of a wine. Pressed off near the end of the primary sugar fermentation, the wine finished primary and secondary (MLF) fermentation in stainless steel tanks before being transferred to a 40:60 blend of new and seasoned French oak barriques sourced from only the grandest French cooperages. The wine matured in oak for 18 months before only the greatest expressions of wine where hand selected from the barrel group. Lightly finned to retain the bullish tannin, colour and tannin.

Tasting Notes

Classic cigar box, tobacco and hints of tomato stalk nuance a dense bouquet. Structure and power to boot, a ripe spectrum of red and dark fruits alight the senses and the fine-grained tannins engage to deliver a big, bullish like wine that has wonderful potential to age.


Drink now if you dare, this wine will continue to age gracefully over the next decade or more.
