All vintages of Studley Park Cabernet are made exclusively from cabernet sauvignon grapes grown at our vineyard in Kew just 4 kms from the Melbourne CBD. No pesticides or herbicides are used. Hand pruning and hand picking contribute to consistently high quality fruit. Winemaker Llew Knight uses open vat fermation and hand plunging resulting in hand made wines of the highest quality. The wines exhibit classic cabernet flavours with strong fruit whilst maintaining good balance between acid and tannins. Our first comercial vintage was in 1998 and we have found that our wines have long bottle age as early vintages have shown little signs of age deterioration. We expect that most vintages would be excellent even after 15 to 20 years.
