Story

As the flagship of the winery, the Calluna Estate is inspired by the defining wines of Bordeaux’s Left Bank featuring primarily Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot and lesser amounts of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec round out the blend. This wine is a selection of Calluna’s best lots from our estate vineyards. Each of the 12 blocks are fermented separately and then evaluated with blending trials after their first 5 months in barrel.
