A son’s love for his father sits at the heart of the Gordon, crafted by winemaker Llew to honour Gordon Knight, fourth-generation farmer, founder of Granite Hills, and progenitor of the 50-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines that form the bedrock of this truly special wine. Today, these gnarled guardians are the region’s oldest, standing watch over the wild, pastoral beauty stretched across the cool-climate Macedon Ranges and producing remarkable fruit that Llew blends with Cabernet Franc and Merlot in a sentimental homage to his dad’s affinity for Bordeaux varieties. The affectionate nostalgia Llew carries for his dad — and the good-natured disagreements they once had over how much water their beloved Cabernet vines needed — find immortal life in this blackberry-and-spice jewel, which always matures for at least five years before release.
