About the wine

Show-stopping, scrumptious single-vineyard Cab straight from Down Under
  • Sam’s single-vineyard Cab is a beautifully balanced Aussie red boasting a bounty of intensely savory dark fruit, elegantly framed with just a touch of oaky spice. 
  • The Gentle Annie Vineyard is set in the heart of Central Victoria, where dry conditions make the vines struggle, giving Sam a low-yielding crop of small berries packed full of extra concentrated flavors.
  • Sam has called this wine “a stylish and sophisticated, full-bodied red that also has a delightful freshness to it. Very classy stuff!” Thirsty yet?

Best before
This wine can be enjoyed now, but some will find the tannins too firm as a youngster, so if possible, leave it a year or so to let some of this tannin polymerise and become softer. It depends on personal taste, but I'll be most excited drinking the Cabernet when it's 5-7 years old.

Serving advice
I think serve the Cabernet at 60-64ºF. In truth I would open the bottle and get straight into it, but if you have the time and patience it will open up a little if left to breathe for an hour or two.

Food match
This is a pretty versatile red, and would go well with a wide range of red meats, and hard cheese. To pick just one dish, I'd go for roast lamb. The protein in the meat will make the tannin feel softer. And along with the blackcurrant primary aroma is a slight herbal note typical of Cabernet, and this will be a complementary flavor like the sprig of rosemary Mum sometimes puts with roast lamb. Delicious!

Meet the winemaker - Sam Plunkett

  • Sam is one of our Australian All-Stars. He garnered lots of attention as the award-winning winemaker at Plunkett Fowles.
  • But Plunkett Fowles hit rough waters and Sam wasn't sure he'd be able to stay in the wine business...until he became Angel funded. Angel support has put his startup on the map.
  • Now Sam is off to the races, with the same dedication to quality winemaking that won so many accolades at Plunkett Fowles and none of the bother about sales or marketing.
