Plantagenet Acquitane Mount Barker Cabernet Sauvignon

Plantagenet Acquitane Mount Barker Cabernet Sauvignon

The Plantagenet Winery was originally named after the name of the Shire in which their Mount Barker vineyard assets reside – Plantagenet. Early English settlers, who favoured royalist titles, named the Plantagenet Shire.
The Plantagenets were the English royal house which reigned from 1154 to 1399 (Henry 2nd to Richard 2nd), the name coming from the nickname of Henry’s father, Geoffrey, Count of Anjou, who habitually wore a sprig of broom – L. planta genista.
The House of Plantagenet portfolio of wines have all been named in honour of either the Plantagenets family names or family branches or from the regions from where they came.
Hence – ‘Aquitaine’ Cabernet Sauvignon, ‘Lancaster’ Shiraz, ‘Normand’ Pinot Noir, ‘York’ Chardonnay and ‘Angevin’ Riesling.

Plantagenet Acquitane Mount Barker Cabernet Sauvignon has deep crimson red with vibrant purple hues. Rich cedar and intense cassis are complemented by nuances of anise, blackberry leaf and earthy complexity. An elegant and structural wine showing beautifully fine tannins and incredible length.

“The Plantagenet wines enjoy enormous success. The purity of fruit captured by winemaker Richard Robson, allied to their reasonable prices, illustrate the reasons for this success.
While the Plantagenet wines all come from grapes grown in mature vineyards in Mt. Baker, the Omrah range is made from fruit from younger vineyards, or from bought in fruit. This range also offers excellent value, something that has made them a hit in Australia.

Western Australia

This state is a relatively small contributor to the country’s grape plantings. However it does not stop the state being responsible for some of the finest wines coming out of Australia. This region clearly has a turning point in its wine producing status. Research reports from Californian viticulturalist Professor Harold Olmo, in the 1950s, and the Western Australian scientist Dr John Gladstone, in the 1960s, indicated that the more southern cooler regions of Western Australia where very well suited for production of world quality wines. Now these regions: Margaret River, Great Southern and Pemberton are the major wine producing regions of Western Australia. Margaret River region is now one of the premium regions of Australia and regarded along with Coonawarra and Yarra Valley as one of the three premium Cabernet Sauvignon areas in Australia.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Probably the world’s most famous red grape variety. Originated from Bordeaux and has been present in Australia since 1832.

Wherever it has been planted the resulting wine has developed its own identity yet it is always recognisable. Although it will vary in intensity the aroma will always be dominated by berry characteristics in the classic wines and the tannins will be firm or textured and soften with age. Cabernet Sauvignon is high in acid and tannin and remains fresh for many years. It can be earthy and display strong blackcurrant flavours. The naturally high tannin and inherent complexity mean all Cabernet Sauvignons will improve with age.

Coonawarra, with its prized ‘terra rossa’ soils, Margaret River, Mount Barker (Great Southern) and Yarra Valley regions are considered the premium Cabernet Sauvignon areas in Australia.
