Before returning to Australia, he spent time working in Chassagne Montrachet in Burgundy, revisited Bordeaux, and travelled through the Rhône Valley. This is a classically styled Cabernet Sauvignon, traditionally fermented in small parcels and aged in the finest French oak. Enjoy with roast beef or lamb, game pie or firm mature cheeses.
