- In the 1890's the vines in this vineyard were the first d'Arenberg vines to be trained above knee height which resulted in the nickname The High Trellis. Over the past four decades, Cabernet Sauvignon from the High Trellis vineyard has been released under the d'Arenberg label and won constant praise. This wine won the coveted Jimmy Watson trophy at the 1969 Melbourne wine show, and has been highly praised ever since.
- This Cabernet Sauvignon gives off aromas of blackcurrant, blueberry and lovely mint leaf. The characters are ripe, balanced and elegant. This Cabernet Sauvignon has fine gravelly tannins and just a hint of oak. Will match perfectly with barbecued meat and roast beef.
- Chester Osborn believes the benefits of minimal input. The fundamental nature of the philosophy is minimal or no irrigation, no fertilization, minimal spraying and no soil cultivation. These practices are employed across vineyards owned, leased and contracted to d'Arenberg to guarantee grape quality and environmental responsibility. The result of this is slightly lower yielding vines bringing to life intense flavoured grapes showing the individual character of the soils they are grown in (What the French call Terroir!!). The environmental benefits are also large with less mechanical requirements, less water and soil richer in natural micronutrients
