Tiny batch, collaboratively hand made in the original 1868 Glenroy Shearing Shed in Coonawarra where the sheep were once shorn, that for generations grazed the pastures on the terra rossa soil where these Cabernet Sauvignon vines now stand.
Tim Kidman has cared for the vines since planting in 1994. Sue Bell and Steve Brown of Glenroy Winemakers fermented the batch in a single open vat solely with indigenous wild yeasts.
Traditional hands on wine making practices of delicate hand plunging three times a day over a week then basket pressing into half new french oak hogsheads for secondary fermentation keep the wine lovely and soft with great texture. Further barrel maturation prior to bottling was conducted under the experienced eye of Phil Lehmann and his team.
Small batch wine making really brings home just how much work, care, attention and most importantly people, it takes to tend the vines, harvest the grapes, ferment and mature the wine, bottle, label and then market the wines
Deep rich dark red with garnet core.
Rich aromas - dark chocolate, briar, sweet red and dark fruits; cassis and plums. Ripe spectrum of flavours with good cabernet varietals. Complexity is enhanced with some hints of iodine and dried herbs.
A lithe and mineral palate with classic fine cabernet tannins. A piercing core of cassis and dark chocolate with supportive fine oak.
A66 is the result of small batch winemaking from a collaboration of Tim and Sarah Kidman, Sue Bell and Phil Lehmann.
