For over 65 years the Crossing family have farmed the Angullong property, which sits in the foothills of Mount Canobolas in the cool highlands of Orange. The Angullong Crossing Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon represents the best parcels of Cabernet from this cool climate single vineyard.

This is an intensively flavoured Cabernet, indicative of its Reserve status. Sweet, complex fruit flavours with a tight structure. The cool climate varietal flavours are balanced beautifully. The length is long and velvety with the oak and dusty tannins adding complex layers. Enjoy this wine now, or cellar it confidently up until 2030.
