Product Details

Doug and Joy Bowen established their 33 ha vineyard in 1972. In recent years daughter Emma joined the family business, boosting the workforce and probably contributing to a lift in wine quality. The Bowen's latest release Cabernet sauvignon shows particularly aromatic fruit of the vintage – in this instance, a pure mulberry – like varietal fragrance meshing perfectly with a sweet cedary note of oak. This sweet cedary fruit – oak combination carries through the rich, elegantly structured palate.

'A convincing wine. High alcohol but it comes across as well balanced. It tastes of blackcurrant, cedar wood, dusty Italian herbs and both warmed black olives and tar. It's generally eager to please, even given its ingrained ropes of firm tannin. There is though little doubt that if it could have been picked earlier a better result would have ensued.' - 93 Points.
