Matilda’s Ghost Cab Sauvignon
Matilda’s Ghost is a tribute to the Australian spirit, as recounted in the bush ballad “Waltzing Matilda” by Banjo Paterson. The song narrates the story of that iconic Australian Larrikin, “The Swagman”, who, having stolen a jumbuck (a crime punishable by hanging), is discovered camped by a billabong by the sheep’s owner and three policeman. Rather than be captured and face an acrimonious death, he jumped into the water and drowned himself. Legend has it that his ghost still haunts the site to this day.
Cabernet Sauvignon (100%)
Plum red with purple hues
Ripe blackcurrant, hints of mint and tobacco oak
Fruit basket with a savoury tobacco oak, staining blackcurrant and plums with shadows of mint. Full body, grippy tight tannins that feed branches for cherry fruit to hang off.
Can be enjoyed upon release but will benefit from careful cellaring
Ideal with venison cooked rare with roasted potatoes or eye fillet on sauteed wild mushrooms
