Coonawarra Cabernet has established itself as a unique genre of Australian wine. The vibrant Terra rossa soils which lie under tiny Coonawarra's superlative vineyards, impart powerful flavours and magnificent richness to the finished wines. This unlabelled offering exudes the characteristic blackberry and currant highlights which distinguish the noble Cabernet, accompanied by spice and vanilla characters that are the hallmarks of quality oak. Excellent value, which in less bountiful years would be branded with the winemaker's label.
Generations of devoted winegrowing families have tended the precious vineyards which yield the noble Coonawarra Cabernet. Through successive vintages, the viticulture and vinification techniques have developed into a science and an art. Grapes are sourced from choice vineyards and treated to a skilled, minimalist handling of fruit, to realize a solidly structured Cabernet wine with a finely balanced, full flavoured palate, framed by assertive tannins and well integrated oak. Ready for enjoyment right now, after a spell of maturation under a combination of fine oak barrels, the signature style of Coonawarra Cabernet, a worthy accompaniement to choice cuts of beef and all robust cuisine.
Dark red purple colour. Rich plum and blackcurrant bouquets with intense blueberry scents and red fruit characters, violets and mint. A persistence of parched berry flavours on the palate, a firm yet pliant tannin backbone serves to support and embellish the fruit. Highly regional, it may be a cleanskin but the quality and provenance distinguishes this wine and places it squarely in the best value category.
