Allegiance Wines The Foreman Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
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.
Awards
Gold Medal – Gilbert & Gaillard International Challenge 2020
Beautiful dark hue tinged with purple-blue. Promising nose of cacao and cassis with a touch of eucalyptus. Powerful, dense, profound palate that is not articulate as yet, with a herbal mid-palate. An ambitious wine that will need time.

Reviews
95-96 points (4.5 Stars) – Winestate
95 points (5 stars) – Leo Daly, Wine Matrix  Inky purple in the glass. Some vanilla , plum and Christmas cake stewed fruit on the nose. An honest, well rounded and balanced Cabernet with blackcurrant and dark chocolate to the fore. Judicious oak treatment in the winemaking process adds to its appeal together with a serious grip on the finish. Classic Coonawarra Cabernet.
94 points (5 stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit  Gorgeously fruited and youthfully appealing, the wine shows cassis, Black Doris plum, thyme, vanilla and roasted hazelnut characters on the nose, leading to a wonderfully weighted palate that’s richly textured and flavoursome. The wine offers terrific fruit power together with rounded mouthfeel, finishing long & delicious. At its best: 2021 to 2029.
92 points (4 Stars) – Stuart Knox, The Real Review  Crushed blackberries lift out of the glass with classic dried earth and cedar notes. There's plump and dense sweet fruits at palate entry, washing along the tongue with some cedar and woodsmoke notes. Fine tannins give structure and hold the fruit well across the finish. There's a lot to like, it's definitive Coonawarra and offers great value. Drink 2020-2030. Top Value. Top Rank.
92 points (4 Stars) – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix  On the nose you are greeted with complex aromas of blackcurrants, mulberries, along hints of tomato bush and soft vanillin oak that are all in harmony. The palate delivers tight active tannins, lots of luscious fruit balanced by tight clean acid, a pleasant solid mouthfeel with good oak integration, all adding to the complexity of this wine. Cellar for 8+ years to get the best from this wine.
91 points – Rob Geddes MW  The Foreman must be eating a cherry ripe here as the wine has generous dark chocolate and dark cherry fruits. Its a easy going sipping style with the upfront berry fruit’s and soft tannins slowly building into medium length of berry fruit chocolate bar.
