The Raconteur is sourced from 80 year old Barossa vines located in
Wilyabrup, Margaret River. These old vines are hand-picked, open
fermented (with 10% whole bunches), basket pressed into some 25%
new French and American oak barriques to finish fermentation before
maturation for 14 – 16 months in the same oak.
The Raconteur typifies classic Margaret River cabernet; lush, rich and
deep purple in colour with bright hues, the aroma leaps from the glass
with violets and black berry and mocha notes. Not unlike a Rorschach
Image, people will see different flavours across the palate; some will find
ripe fleshy black currants and cassis, others will find crunchy sour
cherries; but both complement the overall palate with intensity, weight,
structure and texture. Along with lip-smacking tannins and fine oak
nuances, the Raconteur can easily be enjoyed on immediate opening or
be cellared for up to 10 years and is absolutely a must with roast lamb,
chargrilled rib-eye and/or array of cheeses.
Whatever your choice, the Raconteur will always entertain and command
