McWilliam’s Off the Press Cabernet Sauvignon

Friday October 24, 1970: Just off the press, Glen McWilliam has surprised the winemaking industry by announcing the planting of new grape varieties at his family’s vineyard in the Riverina, NSW. Glen, known for his innovation, has planted a range of table wine varieties, but it is the Cabernet Sauvignon which he is most proud of and believes this luscious, oaked red wine is the perfect accompaniment for food.

Inspired by the iconic stories of the McWilliam’s family throughout the decades and grown from the rich soils of New South Wales, this wine portrays one family’s passion for the art of winemaking.
