Great Barossan Cabernets come from rare and special sites: sites where the land is flat, the air is cool, the soils are deep, and the vines are protected from the afternoon sun, just like the one on which the fruit for the von Kasper is grown. True to both region and varietal, the von Kasper displays the intense fruit expected from the Barossa, with the essential underlying herbaceousness of the Cabernet.
Varietal herbal notes of peppermint and tomato leaf dominate the nose, supported by mulberries, blackcurrant, and violets. These aromas are emulated on the palate and supported by even, emery tannins and well integrated oak. The finish is long with more herbal notes.
