HASTWELL & LIGHTFOOT CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2017
THE WINEThe combination of different ages, clones and rootstocks of Cabernet Sauvignon along with carefully selected oak and 22 months cellaring create this great wine. A drop of Cabernet Franc lifts the mid-palate, adds a hint of spice and eucalypt.

The Hastwell & Lightfoot families came together in 1988 to plant a vineyard in McLaren Vale. This has now grown to 40 acres of vines and three acres of olives, plus seven wines under the Hastwell & Lightfoot brand and three under the name Fat’n Skinny.
The focus of their business is ‘on premise’ and ‘independent’ liquor shops, and their wines have won wine show medal recognition in the capital cities of Australia, Singapore and China.
