In 1890 John Riddoch founded Coonawarra, the history of which is inextricably entwined with the Riddoch and Rymill families.
His grandson, John Riddoch Rymill, was a distinguished polar explorer, whose son Peter and his wife Judy, both farmers and keen equestrians, established the Rymill Coonawarra Winery in 1990. Crafted from the famous ‘terra rossa’ that produces Australia’s best Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep red in colour.
Intense blackcurrant fruit and cedar oak aromas.
A richly flavoured palate with cassis flavours and hints of
mocha, a firm yet fine tannin structure on the finish.
Enjoy with roast beef and vegetables.
2013 saw warm to hot conditions during the growing season with reduced crops but excellent quality particularly in the reds
Cabernet is crushed and fermented on skins for 4-5 days then drained and pressed into French oak barrels for maturation. A portion of the blend will have extended skin contact.
