This wine is a classic Coonawarra style, showing bright crimson colour with rich berry and cassis aromas and flavours over soft tannins.
- SA - Coonawarra
- South Australia
A 90/10% blend that finished its fermentation in French and American oak. The colour is good, the bouquet with blackcurrant and redcurrant, the medium-bodied palate introducing savoury, spicy nuances. Has good mouthfeel and length, with firm, earthy tannins on the finish.
Rating 92 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (Aug/2011)
Winery Tasting Notes
90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot
Medium intensity ruby, with a vibrant purple hue.
Typical Coonawarra characteristics of blackcurrant, mint and dark berry fruit with underlying aromas of violets, spice and anise.
Ripe dark berry fruit with plums, must and hints of black olive and tobacco. The firm yet supple tannin profile combines with the elegantly and well balanced palate to produce a long and satisfying finish.
