Why's this wine for you?
The Maturation series from Rymill sees the release of a very small parcel of the families reserve stock Cabernet being released from the cellar after additional years of bottle age. 2013 in the Terra Rossa of Coonawarra was always kindly regarded as a vintage of gusto and presence. In 2021, the time is just right. The wine still displays incredible vitality, with hints of garrigue, eucalpyt, leather and tobacco providing the complexity. Should be on the 'essentials' list of any Australian wine afficiando.

How's it taste?
It is smooth and velvety, showing that its time in bottle has allowed firm tannins to settle down. Drink this with gusto now, but the wine’s vivacious tension and seamless, lightly dusty tannins will give it the support to see many more years in bottle.
How was it made?
The Maturation Release Cabernet Sauvignon is the result of a small quantity of the 2013 vintage cellared at the Rymill winery for further maturation in bottle, and only released after careful assessment.

Cabernet Sauvignon is Coonawarra’s pre-eminent grape variety. Parcels of premium fruit are selected, fermented and then aged in French oak barrels to produce this full-bodied and richly flavoured wine.

Clean and pure. A flood of blackcurrant and mint with subtle tobacco notes drifting over the top. Classic flavour profile and with the structure to match, though it remains fluid, even seductive. Will mature gracefully and well.

Huon Hooke - The Real Review
Deep red/purple: excellent colour. Cedar, cigarbox and toasty-barrel aromas together with attractively ripe dark berry fruit. The palate is likewise intense and bright, fresh and youthfully bold, with rather gritty tannins and no shortage of acid. It's quite sappy and grippy in texture. It needs time and should turn out to be a very good cabernet. Good length and intensity. A top vintage for this wine.

Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
Smells regal, if there’s such a thing. Lavender oil, fine mahogany, smoke, ripe black berries, fig and date dried fruit, bayleaf. Complex perfume. Courses across the palate with firm tannin, black fruit, squeaky acidity – a chewy wine that spreads across the palate with assertiveness. One for cellaring, but should drink well as it unfurls. 91 + Points

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW - Wine Advocate
Deep garnet in color with a hint of purple, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has a lovely nose of crushed blackberries, blueberries and plums with hints of cedar, menthol, mocha and spice box. Medium to full bodied with plenty of expressive, youthful black fruit and a gentle suggestion of sautéed herbs in the mouth, it has firm, grainy tannins and a lively backbone carrying the fruit to a long finish.

Josh Raynolds - Vinous
Opaque ruby. Red and blue fruits, candied lavender, pipe tobacco and a hint of cedary oak on the perfumed nose. Intense black currant and bitter cherry flavors deepen and spread out slowly with air. Shows impressive depth and supple texture, finishing with smooth tannins and a lingering suggestion of sweet dark fruit.
