Our iconic Bluegrass collection celebrates over three decades of winemaking excellence, expertly crafted with clarity, balance, and depth in every sip. At Saddler’s Creek Wines, we take immense pride in handcrafting small-batch wines of exceptional quality.
Bluegrass is our iconic collection of wines, adored by Club Equus members and visitors alike for over 30 years.
The inaugural vintage of Bluegrass Cabernet Sauvignon was produced in 1990, the same year Saddler’s Creek Wines was founded. The collection has since expanded to include Shiraz, Cabernet Shiraz (The Blend), Cabernet Merlot (The Blend II) and Sparkling Cabernet.
These exceptional wines are crafted for longevity and have the ability to age gracefully for many years. Knowing that with time and patience, these wines will evolve to develop further depth of flavour and complexity over time.
Nevertheless, they are also created to be approachable when young, making them perfect for savouring and sharing at any celebratory moment. In essence, these wines embody the Saddler’s Creek way of life – a tradition of sharing good food and superb wine with friends and family.
Our signature Bluegrass Collection features five wines in the 2023 new release.
2021 Bluegrass Cabernet Sauvignon
An aromatic cascade of blackberry and cassis the palate is plush and generous with hints of dark mint chocolate and vivid Davidson plum. Luxurious and refined delivering undeniable quality with grace and finesse.
