We are happy to announce the release of the 31st Vintage of Sally’s Paddock with the 2009 bottling.
This powerful wine has a clear Ruby Violet colour with a tinge of purple. Distinctive legs as usual.
The fresh berry aromas have a definite cigar box background with some Rose and Violet floral notes. Some lifted spice and cherry aromas are evident as well.
Definite, balanced and fine palate, fresh and tasting of berries but overall wine flavoured. Subtle and complex new wood flavours are well integrated. Some dark cherry flavours on the front palate. The middle palate is “wine” all the way with lingering complex savoury flavours but more fresh fruit characters than the previous vintages. Fine grained natural tannins. Very long soft clean finish with hints of spices and a lovely aftertaste. This wine is deceptively soft, as usual with Sally’s Paddocks at this stage, and will mature beautifully for at least 20 years.

We have released it a month late because the fabulous Spring season has involved a lot more vineyard work. The seasonal tasks of dis-budding, slashing and cultivating were much diminished during the drought, and now the seasons seem to have returned to normal, we are remembering what the full work load was like!
We are very happy to been given a “Distinguished” rating in the Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine for the 5th Time. (Now 20 years on). This places Sally’s Paddock as one of the top 123 wines, and one of the top 15 Cabernet Blends in Australia. Click here for more information.
Seasons Greetings and Happy Drinking,
