The name for our Blackmoor Icon Range is steeped in the winery’s history. Immediately following World War I, King George V granted the land to Captain Leslie Norman Ward, who had been awarded the Military Cross for gallantry during the conflict. While he became acquainted with the quality of the wine that was able to be produced in the Barossa Valley, he also had another passion for racehorses. In 1931, Captain Ward’s horse, Blackmoor, won the A.R.C. South Australian Grand National Hurdle Race. Winning on the line at 66/1 pounds, Blackmoor beat the favourite, an imported horse named Orcades at 2/1 pounds.
This wine is a tribute to those times and is a tremendous example of what Captain Ward learnt recognised so long ago – the supreme quality of wine that could be produced in the Barossa Valley.
Cimicky Blackmoor Cabernet Sauvignon
There’s initial aromas of cocoa and vanilla, with a subtle chalky appearance developing on the palate. Plush blueberry develops as the dominant flavour, then transforming into a substantial amount of red stone fruits and plummy juices. Velvety smooth tannins add an intensity to the finish.
Enjoy now or take advantage of its excellent cellaring potential.
