Good purple-crimson; the fragrant bouquet leads into an elegant, medium-bodied palate with clear-cut varietal character in the blackcurrant / cassis / mint spectrum, along with a hint of earth. Good mouth feel, length and balance; very impressive at the price. Rating 92 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013
Such a good vintage in Coonawarra. Generous and well-rounded Coonawarra cabernet. Blackberry and dark savoury plum with a leafy overtone on the nose.The palate is deep, richly textured with concentrated intensity carrying through to the finish. Lovely wine for the shorter term.Tremendous value. Cellar: 5 years.

From Australia’s premier red-wine region comes this supple, medium bodied drop. It features the elegant aromas of red berries, violets and hints of mint. Perfect for partnering with pastas, red meats and winter fare laced with spicey flavours. Nick Stock, Madison, Augusug 2012
Winery Tasting Notes
Deep ruby red with purple tinges.
An intense nose of blackcurrant and red fruits with lifted mint characters. The small amount of oak maturation lends deft notes of toast and sweet spice to the fruit aromas.
The well-structured palate expresses sweet berry fruit and light oak flavours. Ripe dark berries, plum and dusty mulberry characters abound with a hint of regional mint highlighting the lush palate flavours. Fine grained soft tannins add to the attractive lingering fruit.
Try strips of beef, wokfried in blackbean sauce and served with soba noodles and Asian greens as a great accompaniment. This Cabernet would also be superb after dinner with a selection of cheeses including vintage cheddar and rich blue with plum paste and sliced pear, enjoyed with friends.
