The value and quality of Coonawarra was first recognised by D. A. Tolley who supplied oak barrels and equipment to the district as early as 1908, gaining access to the wines of Coonawarra. To quote from early Tolley records: “The Coonawarra wines were distinctly different from Hope Valley (Tolley home vineyard site near Adelaide). They were dark purple in colour and they had characteristic aroma whilst fermenting.” Nothing has changed!

Winery Tasting Notes
This wine displays red berry and blackcurrant on the nose.
This Cabernet Sauvignon is a medium bodied wine with great balance. This wine shows spicy cabernet fruit, a dense ripeness with grape tannin. Rripe but elegant, distinct Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon characters are evident. Barrel fermentation in French oak provided a balanced integration of oak and fruit.
Enjoy with rib eye steak cooked medium rare preferably still on the bone.
