Background: In honor of Simon's great uncle The Reverend Canon R.K. Sorby Adams OBE was the Anglican Minister at St. Hugh’s Church in the town of Angaston (1956 – 1960).
Season: Temperatures were above average in spring, allowing vines a healthy start to the growing season. Summer was mild with the exception of a few days of extreme heat. Shiraz and Cabernet ripened unusually at the same time, with intense colour formation in berries. The vintage delivered exceptional quality with low yields, likely to surpass the 2002 in greatness.

+ Bonus Wine
Vineyard: Situated in the northern end of Eden Valley is the family owned and operated vineyard of Garden & Field. The site is spectacular which takes in a landscape of rolling hills with vineyards dotted in the distance. Planted on own roots and established as a non- irrigated site, with a southerly aspect. Elevation of 390m consisting of ancient volcanic soil, red brown earth, ironstone, quartz and schist rock lay over clay & limestone.
Season: A dry start to the vintage growing season with expected cooler evenings and seasonal late frosts. Due to the site elevation and vineyard establishment, little frost settled on the grape vines. A warm start to the summer season ensured a strong and healthy canopy structure. Along with warm weather, rain arrived and was higher than expected throughout January and February. The wine grapes were not affected due to no irrigation on site which grapes to ripen with full colour and flavour intensity.
Wine making: Cabernet Sauvignon and Refosco grapes were handpicked before a gentle basket press on site. Skin contact and hand plunging of the fermenting wine grapes continued for for 4-6 weeks, until dry. Traditional handcrafted and tended, reminiscent of yesteryear before maturing in seasoned French oak for 22 months. When bottled the wine was cellared to rest for a further six months prior to release.
Appearance: Deep crimson brick red with purple hue
Aroma/Bouquet: Aromas of violets, blue & black berries and exotic spices. Leather and cedar nuances intertwine with ripe berries and an earthy nose.
Palate: French oak dances around black and mulberry fruits with hints of leather and cedar notes.The wine offers layers of complexity, with concentrated fruit integrating through fine tannin structure. The palate is medium weight with an elegant finish.
Food Pairing: Osso Bucco, hearty Italian cuisine or any rich intense flavoured food. This wine long for a food partner.
