Highbank Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Family Reserve’ 2016

$79.00 inc. GST

100 % Cabernet Sauvignon.

Our family vineyard is one of the original 1890 Coonawarra fruit colony vineyards located on the high bank of terra rossa soil.

Our vines are hand pruned in winter, hand picked at vintage and grown without the use of chemical fertilisers, herbicides or inseticides.

Our wine is hand plunged in open fermenters producing a distinctive soft texture, which is gently enhanced by using only the finest French oak barrels in the wine aging process.


Highbank’s vines are grown without the use of chemical herbicides or insecticides, and have been farmed according to biodynamic principles for more than 25 years.

“Natural wine from before natural wine became a thing – that’s Highbank. Long term biodynamic-organic farmed, wild ferment, only additive is (low-ish) SO2. Such brilliant, wonderful wines here. Oh yeah. Here’s a seriously good wine. It’s not quite to the epic level of the 2014 but it’s close. Succulent feel, medium weight, really pure fruit character, light sheen of oak spice a whisper in the wine. Pretty cassis and lavender characters,
light green herb and pepper elements, some graphite minerality and a moreish, fresh feel. There’s a faint meaty character to the wine too. Such detail and interest, such awesome deliciousness and a general sense that you’re drinking something extraordinarily fine.”
