Cabernet Sauvignon Cellar Dweller Soul Growers was born in homage to the 1953 Orlando Barossa Cabernet, the team set out to make wines that live and develop in the Cellar. In a day and age of instant gratification the intention is to ensure wines like this can and will reward those of you that love to invest time and patience into your wines. The Blend is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon 50% Mattchoss Vineyard, Dorrien – 50+yrs old & 50% Limb Vineyard, Seppeltsfield – 20+ yrs old. Maturation was for 18 Months in 40% New French Oak & 60% Old French Oak.
Soul Growers was formed in 1998 by the experienced winemaker Paul Heinicke with the addition of award-winning winemaker Stuart Bourne, and quickly gathered a strong following in their domestic, Asian and North American markets. Most of their dedicated team members are 5th generation descendants from the first grape-growing families who settled in the Barossa valley. They are fortunate to work with Old Vine, Survivor, Centurion and Ancestor vines, some being over 130 years old, and their goal is to let the unique character of these vineyard sites across the Barossa valley shine through in their wines. Where nature provides, they only guide. With this in mind, they strive to make sure Soul Growers wines emphasise the regional and varietal flavours of their beloved Barossa Valley. The essence of what they strive for is to ensure a lifestyle that is good for the Soul; wine, food, family, music, mates and fun.
