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 vines.  Crushed / destemmed with a cultured yeast added and 9 days on skins.  The parcel spent 10 months in French oak. 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 10+ years.

Colour

Enticing deep red.

Nose

The nose is initially restrained, however it hints of the brooding power to come and the potential to develop in future years.

Palate

The distinctly Cabernet characters of dark chocolate, succulent tannins and dark berries flow through with intensity, balance and fruit weight.

Reviews

95 points – Tony Keys  Blackcurrant with hint of oak on the nose, pure Coonawarra cabernet richness on the palate, very good length and aftertaste its drinking beautifully at the moment but it will continue to develop. 95 points and worth $40.

94 points (5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit  A gorgeous rendition, the fragrant bouquet shows cassis, toasted hazelnut, smoked game, cigar & cocoa characters. It is concentrated & powerful on the palate & displays excellent fruit richness backed by silky texture & supple tannins. The wine is delectably fruited & impressively weighted - finishes superbly long & engaging.

94 points- Stephen Read, Wine Matrix  The colour is intense deep purple red, mint, earthy overtones, vanilla and blackcurrant cassis aromas fill the nose. Blackcurrant, chocolate, sweet oak and tight tannins grab the palate. Has all the hallmarks of classic Coonawarra Cabernet. Still young and will reward if cellared.

93 points – Greg Swift, Wine Matrix  Velvet sheen immediately apparent with a lustrous deep red hue. The nose displays hints of blackcurrant, leather and cedar. 5 to 10 years cellaring will be worth the effort to enable smoky and sweet timber characteristics to develop. This wine will over deliver in time and is superbly balanced.

93 points – Ken Gargett, Winelinx  A delightfully approachable Cabernet, for such a youthful wine. Spices and that tell-tale hint of mint, though it is certainly not intrusive. Dark fruits. Juicy acidity and very fine tannins, in a nicely balanced wine. A focused effort with good length. A classy Coonawarra Cab. One that will cellar well. Best drinking: ten years.

93 points – Rob Geddes  Meeting the nose are savoury raspberry, dark berry, mulberry leaf aromas. The palate has harmony from well-judged fruit and oak balance with a good middle with flavour length showing mulberry, raspberry, black currant fruits and fine tannins to close.

92 points – Wine Genius  The complete array of red and black berries, plush, well spiced and highly enticing. Touches of menthol are offset by balanced oak, mocha intensity and gentle tannins. A lovely wine.
