Rich, ripe mouth filling cherry, berry and dark chocolate flavours with generous mid palate weight and good length. Fruit and oak tannins are both textural and enhancing.
Well balanced between fruit dominant and savoury characters. A genuine expression of Coonawarra Cabernet.
"Sourced from four vineyards in Coonawarra. Very happy with this. It’s fleshy and fruity where it needs to be and otherwise sinewy and structural. It presents the way you hope cabernet will. It draws out well through the finish as well. Blackcurrant, sweet tobacco and bay leaf flavours mostly. It’s a lovely, elegant red wine."

"A gentle expression of Coonawarra, a region too often marred by angular harsh tannins and poorly managed fruit. Savoury restraint the calling card here, across currant, chilli, mint and some herb strewn across a crunchy, detailed finish. Understated and finely tuned."
