Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"Dudley Ruediger is a long-time friend and contemporary of Peter Lehmann. At the height of the vine pull scheme in the late 1980s, Dudley bucked convention and planted cabernet based on the encouragement of his mate PL. Well into his 80s, Dudley still tends the vines alongside son Trevor on one of the most significant vineyards of the “new” Barossa. The Ruediger vineyard is particularly special as it covers the border of the Light Pass and Ebenezer sub-regions, providing two distinct characteristics of Barossa cabernet in a single vineyard wine.

The colour is intense black/red. The bouquet is rich in blackcurrant and violets leading in to a richly flavoured palate showing fine grained tannins and a persistent finish. This is a limited release, single vineyard wine from an excellent year and shows just how unique Barossa Cabernet can be."

94/100 James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (2013 Vintage)
"Fermented for 10 days on skins, then 12 months in French hogsheads. Blackcurrant, bay leaf and oak spice aromas lead into a medium-bodied palate that introduces a jab of bitter chocolate alongside cabernet tannins; has length and focus, but needs time."

95/100 Rob Geddes MW (2013 Vintage)
"Fresh and pretty with deep complex cabernet elements of black and green olive, coriander and oregano. The palate is amazing. Slippery tannins leading to long complex olive and coriander blackcurrant fruit in well balanced tannins and overall bright juicy fruit that finishes ripe and exciting."
