Situated between the sea and the hills, on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula, the McLaren Vale wine region enjoys a moderate Mediterranean climate and rich diversity of soils. Highly regarded for traditional McLaren Vale varieties, Serafino produces Shiraz and Italian varieties which reflect the family’s Italian heritage.
This Cabernet Sauvignon is full of flavour, texture and complexity. The fruit is voluptuous and full with blackberry coco, ripe red jalapeno, plum and black olive characters, finishing with a fine bead of tannin and power enhanced by quality integrated oak. A varietal perfect wine.
From Serafino's best vineyards, closed fermenters with pumpovers, matured for 12 months in French and American hogsheads (25% new). The varietal expression of cabernet runs strong and pure in this wine, reaffirming the symbiotic connection with place. It's medium-bodied, cassis flows freely in its veins, and the tannins are just as they should be.

Bright purple red with aromas of blackcurrant and cedar following through to the juicy palate that oozes approachability. Liquorice, chocolate, and vanilla mingle with the black and red fruit and fine silky tannins are beautifully integrated into the oak. Smooth and delicious.

Heady notes of plum, cherry and cassis, sweet baking spices and mocha. Baked beetroot in colour, suede-like tannins and sweet ripe fruit linger on the palate. A big wine suitable to take on a protein rich meal with some green veg. Drink: Now to 2025; Price: $28.00; Alcohol: 14.5%;
