For over 20 years, Petaluma's Coonawarra has been predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, two of the best varietals from South Australia's renowned Coonawarra region.

The fruit for Coonawarra is sourced from two main sites, the Evans Vineyard and the Sharefarners Vineyard. The average age of vines at Petaluma's Evans and Sharefarmers Vineyards is in excess of 30 years and these hand pruned, close spaced, vertical canopy vines are naturally balanced at modestcrop levels of 5 tonnes/hectare of hand picked fruit.

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varieties

The 2008 Petaluma Coonawarra is once again a blend of predominantly Cabernet Sauvgion (60%) and Merlot (31%), with Shiraz (9%) making up the balance.


Deep intense colour.


Typically elegant Coonawarra Cabernet Merlot in style, the Shiraz adds a lovely sweet supple middle, important in a wine so young. Deep intense colour with soft, sandy abundant tannin, the 2008 Petaluma Coonawarra is a big brooding dry red, and ranks amongst the best vintages in Coonawarra.

Cellaring Potential

While the wine is soft and approachable now, it really deserves very long term cellaring to allow the underlying cedar and spice to fully develop. A vintage to keep!
