Chain of Ponds Amadeus Cabernet Sauvignon
The picturesque Adelaide Hills township of Chain of Ponds was established as a friendly watering hole and resting place for weary travellers. While the township is but a fond memory, the stories live on through the wines, proudly produced since 1985.
Selected from the McLaren Range vineyard at Kuitpo in the souther Adelaide Hills, a north facing aspect with north-south row orientation and an elevation of 360m. Soil is a sandy loam with ironstone gravel over weathering sandstone. Clone is G9V3 and the canopy is managed with a single catch wire and assisted sprawl. The block produces elegant wines with dark fruits, powerful tannins and varietal intensity.
