The Boundary Row range of wines is named after a Barossa tradition of using vine rows rather than fences to distinguish the different owners of adjoining vineyards, with fruit from the boundary row shared between the neighbours.
Vineyard: Fruit for the Boundary Row Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from selected parcels of grapes from vines varying in age from 30 to 40 years old, from vineyards at Light Pass and Eden Valley. The vines receive minimal or no irrigation and are pruned for low yields to provide vine balance and maximum fruit quality and varietal characteristics.
Winemaking: The wine was matured in a mixture of seasoned (90%) and new (10%) French oak hogsheads for 19 months prior to bottling.
Acidity: 6.2 g/L
Colour: Rich, deep red with purple hues.
Nose: Lovely chocolate, mint and menthol aromas.
Palate: A full-flavoured palate with luscious ripe peppermint and chocolate pudding flavours. The finish is a mixture of cassis, cigar-box, fine-grained tannins and sweet, lingering subtle oak.
Cellaring Potential: Further cellaring will be rewarded although the wine is suitable for current consumption. I highly recommend that this wine be decanted prior to serving.
Food Match: Boundary Row Cabernet Sauvignon is a great match with grilled, pan-fried or roasted meats, and full-flavoured dishes.
