Allegiance Wines The Foreman Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Varieties
Cabernet Sauvignon
Region
Coonawarra, SA
Wine making notes
The secret to the success of the Coonawarra Wine Region is the rich, red soils of the Terra Rossa.  These soils are the engine room of the region providing powerful and distinct wines.  Reynella clone Cabernet Sauvignon taken from low yielding 20-30 year old vines.  Crushed / destemmed with a cultured yeast added and 7-9 days on skins.  The parcel spent 9 months in varying ages of French oak.
Colour
Bright crimson red with deep purple hues.
Nose
Blackcurrant and mulberry fruit provide the introduction to lingering chocolate and spicy fruit.
Palate
Blackberry fruit and rich blackcurrant entice you into savouring the delicious oak flavours.  The subtle tannins provide balance whilst the lingering chocolate adds an elegant finish.  This is  a classy wine.
Comments
Allegiance Wines has sourced this premium parcel of Cabernet Sauvignon from the premium Australian wine region of Coonawarra.  This wine is an excellent example of the outstanding results possible, when an allegiance between growers and winemakers creates their best expression of the varietal and vintage.  Cellar potential of 8-10 years.
Dedication
Dedicated to the iron men who built the timber ships.
“Timber ships and iron men” was one of my father’s favourite sayings.  Jim Cox was a shipwright for over 40 years following national service and time in the Merchant Navy.  As Foreman Shipwright at Ballina Slipway & Harwood Marine, my father built and refitted some of Australia’s most famous vessels including the Circular Quay – Manly Ferry, South Steyne, and the legendary WWII infiltrator, MV Krait.  Dad’s dedication to his craft is my inspiration for this wine.

Reviews
94 points (5 stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit  The wine shows gorgeous ripeness on the nose with delightful notes of cassis, plum jam, mixed spice and cigar box, leading to a wonderfully weighted palate that is supple and generously textured. It is flavoursome and mouthfilling with a lengthy delectable finish. At its best: now to 2028.
 
90 points – Huon Hooke, The Real Review  Deep red colour with a tinge of purple. The bouquet is fresh and bright with some gumleaf minty aromas. A big, full-bodied, powerful wine with a fair dollop of astringency. It definitely needs more time. Drink window 2021-2033.
 
90 points – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix  Deep purple red with aromas of blackcurrant, tar, mint and tomato bush. Tight green tannins up front with minty cassis and dark chocolate nuances, balanced by well-integrated acid. All wrapped in a medium bodied mouthfeel and a clean tight finish. Will keep for 5+ years with careful cellaring.
