The Wine:

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from 1960s planted vines situated in Vine Vale, Barossa Valley. Currently tended to by Wayne Ahrens and Suzie Hilder.

The label, much like the wine, is a nostalgic throw back to some labels of old and features the heritage listed church that we use as our winery and sometimes cellar door - “Oddio” in Bowden, Adelaide.

6-7 weeks on skins. 2nd use French oak for 14 months on lees. 2 months in stainless steel prior to bottle. The intent was to create a luncheon claret styled wine, that has nice balance of fruit weight, tannin and acidity, without being too dense, dark and tough.
