Lifted, structured, vibrant and fine.
Winemaker Comments: Fruit from both Cabernet blocks in front of the cellar door are blended to produce 19th Meeting. These blocks are shoot and bunch thinned to produce lovely, light filled open canopies. Planted in 1993 there are 5 hectares in total.

Wine review: '19th meeting sings its credentials of varietal, cool climate cabernet! Fragrant and precise, it's varietally exact in its expression of blackcurrants and violets. Lifted, elegant and pure, it retains eloquence in the midst of enduring definition. There is real drive here, thanks to very a finely poised backbone of beautifully focused tannins. First tasted in 2015, classy French oak has appreciated some time to fully integrate. In purity, precision, persistence and longevity, this will go down among the great Adelaide Hills Cabernets.'

Wine review: 'Shed some of its greener, cerebral notes and gone into a darker phase with touches of cacao and espresso providing the structure to underpin its gloriously lush cassis tones. It's like this estate makes a DIY dinner party trail of wines within its folio as you can move seamlessly from one wine to the next satiating every taste bud in your being.'
