This Cabernet is a blend of two low yielding vineyards tended by Dudley and Trevor Ruediger situated to the north of Nuriootpa on either side of Research Road, which neatly bisects the Light Pass and Ebenezer districts of the Barossa. To the east in Light Pass, the Cabernet grows on light sandy loam, and to the west in the Ebenezer district it grows on red, loamy clay. The Ruediger vineyards have produced a wine of great style and strength, that showcases just how good Barossa Cabernet can be.
