The Islander Estate Vineyards

2019 Cabernet Sauvignon

2019 Cabernet Sauvignon

This is our first, and unfortunately last, vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon from our Kangaroo Island estate.

Our vines were grafted in 2016 and with a few setbacks we had this, our first vintage, in 2019 only to lose the vines in the 2020 fires.   But what a wine!  Rich and plush but still elegant and delicate, the fruit fills the mouth early and soft tannins draw the finish out smooth and long.

A wine to hang onto for up to 15 years, by which time the events of 2020 will be but a dim memory.

Here's a story in a bottle. After several years/viticultural challenges, this cabernet came to fruition for the first time in '19. A delicately teased cabernet, with all the varietal character on the nose, beautiful clarity of flavour, medium-weighted concentration and a coat of classical tannins. But wait – after finally doing its thing in '19, the KI bushfires of '20 destroyed the block and it sadly won't see the light of day again. Get into it while you can – once in a lifetime.
