Overview

On the southern boundary of Coonawarra is the old Penola cricket ground, which first saw a ball bowled in anger and the flashing cover drives of the local champions in 1950. Sadly, the ground closed in 1996. Soon after Jim Barry purchased the 30 acre property and planted a Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard. The original pavilion and pitch have been retained, thus preserving an important piece of Coonawarra sporting history.

Fruit from this vineyard, along with selected parcels of fruit from our family owned Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Clare Valley have been blended to produce a wine that is rich, soft and approachable.

Aroma

The nose is very fragrant with intense cassis and cedar dominating the aromas. There is some underlying nuances of fennel and damson plums.

Palate

This is followed by a generous, medium bodied palate with lovely, succulent tannins which carry the flavours of of blackcurrant, sandalwood, liquorice and morello cherries.

Cellaring

As with previous releases of ‘The Cover Drive’, the wine displays harmonious balance and can be enjoyed now or will reward cellaring for 5 years.
