About

is a big, badass wine.

Rise up against ordinary flavors and domesticated wines. Break free. Take a stand for concentrated pleasure and life on the edge. Rich, full-bodied Insurrection comes from Australia, where people decide for themselves and no one apologizes for living full throttle.

The Wine

RED BLEND

Appellation: SE Australia (Padthaway, Coonawarra and Langhorne Creek)
Alcohol: 15.0%
Aging: 64% American Oak, 36% French Oak

Grapes were left on the vine as long as possible, maximizing fruit flavors for a wine that is intensely rich and ripe. Night harvesting maintained freshness, rotary fermentation enhanced power and medium oak treatment added toast and spice.

Big bold flavors envelop the palate with red fruit, plum and chocolate. Shiraz offers berries and spice, while Cabernet Sauvignon delivers power and structure. Relentless waves of strong, rich flavor resolve into a long, smooth finish.

Tasting Notes

The Wine

CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Appellation: SE Australia (Langhorne Creek and Padthaway)
Alcohol: 15.5%
100% cold climate fruit
French oak aged

Wine Style: A bold, classic Australian Cabernet Sauvignon made from fruit left on the vine as long as possible. Our winemaker Steve Roden aged the wine on French oak and put emphasis on developing a complex and robust offering that finishes strong with well-integrated tannins.

Tasting Notes: Intense crimson color with aromas of rich ripe red berry fruit and oak spice. On the front end: concentrated blackberry, black cherry and black currant leading to mocha, spice and a hint of vanilla bean on the mid-palate. Structured tannins carry through to a lengthy finish.

Press

is producing some of the best wines in the world. But don't take our word for it:

“Insurrection doesn’t hold anything back … Written in jagged red letters on the back label, “relentless,” “bold” and “unapologetic” … “This is the wine style we set out to make and stylistically we wanted consumers to know this – they are about to experience a bold new taste and we did not want to hide this fact but to enjoy the experience. The fruit flavors are ripe with black cherry, plum and currant. Dark chocolate flavors are intense but not tart. A long finish carried on, and despite its 15 percent alcohol content, it’s not a jammy wine.”

“This is full-bodied, velvety-textured and expansive in the mouth, delivering plenty of bold cassis, chocolate and sage flavors. Some brighter, red-fruit notes mingle with mocha shadings on the surprisingly long finish.”
