Shingleback Davey Estate

Cabernet Sauvignon 2016




Only select parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, grown on both red and black soils over limestone on the Davey Estate vineyard, qualify for this reserve wine. Partial cold soaking prior to fermentation maximises the fragrance of the finished wine. Extended fermentation time on skins helps to capture the essence of the fruit and gives a silky but firm tannin finish. Maturation for an average of 15 months in 1 – 6 year old fine-grained French oak hogsheads, softens, enhances and integrates the fruit and structural components of the wine. 

Tasting Note

Deep red. Aromas of blackcurrant and blueberry are highlighted with nuances of bay leaf and cedary oak. Textured savoury tannins envelop the luscious blackberry and blueberry fruit flavours of this full-bodied, varietal McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon.


Vegan friendly – no animal products are used in the production of this wine.



It's a dusty number but it's a good one. Indeed the value meter sets off an alert straight away. It tastes of boysenberry and dry licorice, dust and dry herbs. It has enough volume to satisfy, enough length to impress, and the shape to age well. 94 pts.
