The inaugural vintage under the Taylor label was in 1973, it was Cabernet Sauvignon and it wooed the industry, winning gold medals at every national wine show. The Cabernet rich classics of Bordeaux had long held a fascination for the Taylor brothers. Producing wines of comparable quality within Australia prompted the family's foray into the industry. With this vision in mind, the Taylor site was chosen for it's idyllic red brown loams over limestone, its precious Terra rosa soils and splendid Clare Valley clime, renowned for the remarkable quality of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Taylor is crafted to express the solid fruit characters of Cabernet Sauvignon while also reflecting the profound influences of Clare Valley. Fruit is harvested only when the berries have reached optimum flavour and tannin ripeness. Vinification is carried out in the winery's original Potter fermenters, which allow for excellent control of skin maceration and extraction as the wine can be pumped over twice daily. Some parcels were left on skins for an additional fortnight to increase tannin structure. Parcels are pressed into oak for completion of primary fermentations and a course of malolactic, followed by a year's maturation in a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels. Alcohol 14.5%
TASTING NOTES
Deep red, vibrant purple hue. Aroma of rich blackcurrant, subtle star anise spice and touch of eucalypt. French oak maturation is evident with subtle aromas of tobacco leaf, cedar and chocolate. A wine of great intensity, offers distinctive blackcurrant and cassis fruit flavours. Subtle oak characters of cedar, cigar box and spice. The tannins are elegant and fine, the palate is balanced, complex and fulfilling, it lingers effortlessly on the finish.

More About Taylors Winery
Situated at the very heart of South Australia’s beautiful Clare Valley, Taylors has become one of Australia’s best loved and most trusted wineries
The tale of Taylors winemaking goes back a few years – three generations in fact, and all began with Bill Taylor Senior, and his love of a certain Bordeaux wine. Originally wine merchants in Sydney, a passion for wine was all part of being a Taylor, and in particular, for the famous French Clarets such as Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux’s Medoc region. It was this long held fascination for these wines which inspired the family’s foray into winemaking, and provides the inspiration and winemaking philosophy behind all Taylors winemaking today – to produce premium wines of exceptional and comparable quality in Australia.
