Overview

South Australia’s Limestone Coast is justifiably famous for its Cabernet Sauvignon. Our soils and climate, while somewhat different to Cabernet’s home in and around the important and graceful French coastal city of Bordeaux, offer the vintage conditions, which suit this late-ripening classic variety.

Winery Tasting Notes

While warmer parts of the state make Cabernet with attractive richness - and a certain massive style - these wines can lack genuine ‘Cabernet’ character. However, in cooler climes it is almost impossible to make anything BUT distinctive Cabernet, and that is certainly our aim. Myra shows what Padthaway can do!

Colour

Mid red in colour.

Aroma

The wine has what we all expect: a classic Cabernet nose of what the Frogs call cassis (blackcurrant; some know it as Ribena...) and plums, with hints of mint and eucalypt... plus slightly sweeter notes of violets and roast tomato.

Palate

The early palate is gentle, before the varietal Cabernet fruit gets into the picture, and suddenly it oozes plum, cassis and soy, before subtle oak and dry tannins provide admirable length and persistence.

Food Matching

A classic French provincial dish such as Pot au feu or Cassoulet. Or do what boat-loads of Bordeaux have done for years: cross the Channel - and enjoy it with

roast beef and horseradish. The Yorkshire pudding is optional...
