Rosily The Cartographer Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot
Comte Francois de Rosily was a French navigator and cartographer, who in 1772 prepared the first chart of Flinders Bay in Australia's south west. On the same voyage, the captain of his ship claimed possession of the south west of Australia on behalf of France. As proof of this claim, Rosily prepared a chart showing where a bottle containing a parchment and two coins was buried.
Bordeaux Blend: Some years ago, we changed this wine's name from "Cabernet Merlot" to "The Cartographer". This was to enable our winemaker, Mick Scott, to assemble the perfect blend of the "bordeaux" varieties each vintage, without being constrained by labelling technicalities.
