94

Coonawarra cabernet and McLaren Vale Shiraz, matured for 18 months in 35% new French oak hogsheads. Coonawarra cabernet is a classic partner with warm-climate South Australian shiraz and this new rendition is set to go down among the greats. Fragrant, taut and fine-boned, it's packed with spicy, crunchy berry fruits. An intricate mesh of fruit and oak tannins unites with vibrant acid drive, setting off a long finish and grand longevity.

So well melded in every respect, this has dark-berry and plum aromas and flavors with some light herb and bracken on the nose, too. The palate is boldly fleshy and delivers plenty of rich fruit flavor, in the dark-berry and plum zone. Smooth and approachable, yet fleshy and intense. Nicely blended style. Drink or hold.
