Pat Tocaciu and his wife Jenny moved to Coonawarra in 1989 with their son Luke, who was just 4 years old at the time. His ultimate dream was to one day own his own little vineyard and winery, which became a reality in 1989 when they bought their first little patch of Cabernet Sauvignon. This became known as their 'Home Block'. In 1998, the first Home Block Cabernet Sauvignon was made and in 2004, Pat and Jenny Tocaciu officially opened their doors for the very first time releasing three wines: 1998 Home Block Cabernet Sauvignon, 2001 Shiraz and 2003 Riesling, and they've never looked back. With the passing of Pat in 2013, Luke is now the Director and Winemaker with Jenny remaining close by for additional support and guidance.

This premium Coonawarra vineyard, lovingly named the 'Home Block', is a single vineyard of Cabernet Sauvignon surrounding the Tocaciu family home. These vines were planted in the 1970s. Yields are low, producing just 1–2kg of fruit per vine, which results in the concentrated, high-quality fruit that goes into both the Grande Reserve and Home Block Cabernets.

Tasting Note:
With an intense and complex aroma, there is so much joy here. Rich, bold blackberry fruit is balanced with notes of dark chocolate and the subtle oak spice and cedar aromas combines wonderfully well with the tobacco, game and earthy undertones showing the wines evolution. The palate is full and bold with well integrated alcohol, smooth ripe tannin and leading to a long, balanced finish.
The warmer vintage has allowed great varietal expression, rich fruit and a bold yet expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. We are very lucky to have these right in our very own backyard. 

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with High acidity and Medium+ tannin. It is Pronounced in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
