This is a very special wine! Be quick, there are only 3000 bottles available!
Renowned South Australian artist Tom Gleghorn has honoured Reillys Wines by allowing us to use one of his beautiful prints on a new wine label. Inspired when watching preparation for an Aboriginal tribal dance, Tom has called this vibrant painting 'The Landscape Dancer'.
To match this stunning label, Justin has released one of his finest wines being the 2006 RCV Cabernet Sauvignon.
The premium dry grown fruit used for this wine was hand picked from Smyth's Vineyard then open fermented before being gently basket pressed.
It has spent 22 months in French Oak Hogsheads resulting in an exquisitely smooth wine with flavours of mint, blackcurrant and dark chocolate.
This is a limited release wine with only 3000 bottles being produced and all are numbered.
92 points ~ Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (USA)#192, Dec 2010
"2006 The Dancer Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet color that is maintaining some youthful purple in the rim. The nose is incredibly fragrant and intensely scented with notes of eucalypt, dried mint, creme de cassis and blackberry pie filling. Very full bodied, rich and opulent, it offers an abundance of warm blackcurrant fruit with crisp acid, medium-firm finely grained tannins and a long chocolate-mint finish. Delicious now, it should continue to cellar through 2018."
