One such technique that we use is regional blending. An example of this can be found with the Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon, which is a very special example of the variety where the fruit is sourced from both our Clare Valley estate and a grower partner in the Coonawarra wine region.

Their artistic sensibilities are then indulged as they blend the two parcels seamlessly together to produce a multi-layered wine of interminable interest and wonderful complexity.
