A "Caymus style" of an Australian red wine. is bold yet nuanced, featuring scents of smoky meat, chocolate and wet soil. A hint of mint on the palate stems from native trees. Made with the same techniques as world famous Caymus wines.

WINEMAKER NOTES
Legendary for the production of memorable red wines, South Australia was our inspiration for Transit. Caymus began with finding high-caliber grapes - always the key to each of our wines. Next came transit over ocean waters, a practice now both common and efficient for fruits and vegetables. The chilled grapes arrived at Caymus, as if just harvested.

They use time-honored winemaking techniques to extract deep color and rich tannins during fermentation, while staying attuned to place of origin. One can smell a slight mint character, likely a derivative of native trees. A ripe style, along with the nuance of dried fruit, reflects Australia's warm, dry conditions. Aging was in French oak barrels, with bottling in April 2018. Instead of a vintage date, each bottle will be known by its transit - this first bottling is: Red Schooner Transit 1.
91 POINTS - "The Red Schooner by Caymus Transit No.1 is powerful and lasting. This wine delivers aromas and flavors of black licorice, black fruit, and oak." - Wilfred Wong
Our new “Red Wine of the World,” this red blend is sourced from famed regions of southern Australia, the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. Mostly Shiraz with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon, Transit 1 is bold yet nuanced, featuring scents of smoky meat, chocolate and wet soil. A hint of mint on the palate stems from native trees. Just like our Red Schooner Malbec from Argentina is known by the “voyage” that produced it, this wine is called a sequential “transit.”
