"This is gorgeously ripe and enticing on the nose with cassis, dark plum, floral, dried herb and cedar notes. The concentrated palate delivers excellent depth and weight, combined with refined texture and chalky tannins, offering structure and impressive length. At its best: now to 2033."
Hearty, minty nose backed up by dark, concentrated fruit, spiced red plums and toasty oak. Sturdy, yet also elegant and discreet.
"The wine is a classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon showing intense cassis fruit flavours, with a long finish on the palate and soft tannins. The wine was matured in French oak, adding to its structure, but not dominating the pure Coonawarra Cabernet fruit characters. The fruit for the Cabernet Sauvignon is selected from old vine material from the Wilgha and Neilson's Block vineyards at the cooler, southern end of Coonawarra. Located on the famous terra rossa soil, these vineyards were originally planted by Ian and Wendy Hollick in the 1970s and early 1980s. It will effortlessly cellar for at least 10 years. Aromas of blackcurrant and mulberry fruit with spice and chocolate. Rich cassis flavours and berry fruit aromas dominate the wine. Subtle tannins provide balance whilst the lingering chocolate adds an elegant finish." Winery
