Our Isabelle Cabernet Merlot is a tribute to Rob Gibson’s mother - a lady of warm heart, underlying strength and a touch of vibrant eccentricity.

This Bordeaux-inspired wine is an expression of varieties that are all grown on our home block, at the cold end of the Barossa in Light Pass - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a small percentage of Petit Verdot.

Our microclimate in the North-Eastern Barossa is well suited to these varieties, which typically perform better in cooler pockets. Two factors are at play here - we sit at a slightly higher elevation than the valley-floor, which moderates temperatures. We are also at the edge of the foothills of the Barossa’s ranges, where cool air runs down the hills and settles over the river flat terrain of Light Pass itself. This is evident in the many frost fans that are dotted throughout the region.

Our 2020 vintage of Isabelle Cabernet Merlot boasts lifted aromas of musk and black cherry with layers of spice. The palate shows great complexity and depth with flavours of black cherry, olive and bay-leaf, balanced with bright acidity leading to a long, powdery dry finish.

Enjoy a glass or two of Isabelle Cabernet Merlot with braised beef or caramelised vegetables.

Tasting Notes
