The name Coulthard is in recognition of the Willson sisters' ancestors who arrived in South Australia from England aboard The HMS Buffalo in 1836. This fruit was grown on ancient alluvial flood plain soil, traditional to this area and as a result of an individual parcel selection, has allowed them to show the pure varietal expression of Langhorne Creek Cabernet.

An individual parcel selection. Excellent colour; the bouquet breathes blackcurrant fruit, the medium-bodied palate picking up the trail without hesitation, the flavours gliding along towards a long, well balanced finish. Good stuff at this price. James Halliday, Rating 92, 27th July 2015
Winery Tasting Notes
Individual Cabernet parcels were fermented separately in small open fermenters to allow excellent extraction of colour and flavour. Each batch was matured in a combination of new and older French and American oak barriques for 18 months.
This wine will develop with further bottle maturation however the fine tannin structure means the wine can be enjoyed now.
Matches well with a pasta, red meat or cheese.
