Winery Tasting Notes

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec grapes - the classic grape varieties of the famous French district of Bordeaux - were blended to produce this outstanding red wine from the 1990 vintage.

Prior to bottling, the wine was matured in new and one year old French Nevers oak hogsheads and barriques for an average period of 18 months.

The 1990 Coonawarra Pyrus displays a complex bouquet of charry oak and berry fruit. The palate shows elegant plum fruit characters, soft tannins and a lovely lingering sweet oak and fruit flavour.

A good acidity and structure indicate that this wine will cellar exceptionally well.
