A regionally representative Cabernet. Full flavoured and luscious. Mint and eucalypt with classic blackcurrant fruit finishing with soft chalky tannins.

Intense near black colour. Definitely a McLaren Vale Shiraz, full bodied with lots of dark plum and berry fruit. American oak gives backbone. Fine grainy tannins extend the finish.
Morgan Simpson is a small McLaren Vale wine producer located in the foothills of the South Mount Lofty Ranges. Winemaker Richard Simpson (B.App. Science – Wine Science, CSU) selects small parcels of fruit from the families’ Clos Robert vineyard (first planted by Robert Allen Simpson in 1972).
The winemaking began with a trial vintage – 2 barriques of Cabernet Sauvignon – in 1997 (Silver medal and 2nd overall in the National Amateur Wine and Beer Show) followed by the start of a commercial operation in 1998 with their only wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon, winning a Gold medal at the McLaren Vale wine show.
Since then they have won a few more medals and trophies and extended the range somewhat. The wine is hand made on site using traditional small scale winemaking equipment and batch process methods (basket press, small open fermenters, hand plunge). They combine this with, as far as economically practicable, modern analytical techniques. They currently crush about 20 tonnes (Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Mataro, Semillon and Chardonnay).
