Congratulations to Garden & Field Wines  Winestate Magazine have reviewed a fantastic line up of Cabernets & Bordeaux blends. With over 200 wines selected in the tasting line-up, it was a big gong for the 2018 vintage receiving 4 1/2 stars.
The Gnadenberg Road Cabernet Refosco blend is one of a kind. Beginning with the first plantings of Refosco in South Australia in 2013. The vines were hand planted alongside the Cabernet until enough fruit could be gathered for this unique and divine red wine blend.
