This dark, cassis rich Cabernet is from the excellent Calabria cellar. We’ve been working with Bill Calabria for years. Originally he always sourced the grapes from King Valley, but now he searches more widely. The result: a dense, fruit laden red.
Long Live the King will bowl you over with its ripe, minty blackcurrant flavour and satisfying grip. It’s the work of Bill Calabria, with whom we’ve been working since 1984. The wine was originally a tribute to Victoria’s magnificent King Valley that in 1995 was under threat from the dreaded phylloxera beetle. Determined winemakers dug in and managed to fight the pest off. Since 2017 Bill has sourced the grapes from a variety of regions, complementing the leaner King Valley fruit with the riper notes of New South Wales’ grapes. The result is a luscious wine, rich with sweet dark berries and plum, classic eucalyptus, plus good grip and length. For now let the wine breathe a little before serving with aged steak or mature farmhouse Cheddar.
"A wonderfully deep Cabernet. A complex and long-lasting taste. It went perfectly with roast beef"
