Alessandra adores Corryton Park. After being introduced to this beautiful 1850s homestead by her love, she decided to be married there. Her husband's wedding gift to her was a signature wine of her own. 

The grapes for Alessandra were grown in Grant Burge's Corryton Park vineyard high in the cool-climate Eden Valley, and blended seamlessly with small lots from the Barossa Valley floor to capture rich, velvety texture and full fruit flavours. 

Tasting Notes

NOSE: Super fine and elegant nose of cedar, cigar box, tobacco and intense fruit perfume of blackcurrant and mulberry.
PALATE: Black fruits and fine chalky Cabernet complexities, which linger effortlessly on an ever-ending delicate finish.
SERVE: Decant at least 30 minutes before serving.
PAIR: Perfectly cooked steak and good conversation.

Winemaking

VINEYARD: 50/50 blend of two premium Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, namely the famous old vine Corryton Park in high Eden Valley and Moppa Springs Estate, just outside of the Greenock township.
WINEMAKING: Matured for two years in new French oak and then a further three years in bottle prior to release, in order for the wine to properly mature to a suitable drinking age.
CELLARING: Ready to drink now, but will reward further patience for up to 20 years.
