Coonawarra is the Cabernet capital of Australia. The maritime climate of Coonawarra is not dissimilar to that of Bordeaux. The upwelling of cold ocean currents and consistent cloud cover contribute to an overall temperature reduction, making Coonawarra the perfect environment for Cabernet Sauvignon. This grape varietal has found its place in the Terra Rossa of Coonawarra, where vine vigour, ripeness and wine flavour are cultivated. Free drainage, water holding capacity and neutral pH are the crucial characteristics of this Mediterranean soil that creates the richness of Cabernet Sauvignon. Coonawarra’s environmental factors contribute to a wine that produces a savoury elegance and structure of Europe but the fruit ripeness, purity and concentration of Australia.
AROMA & PALATE
The Coonawarra's famed Terra Rossa soil has provided us with a big, rich Cabernet showing red currants, vanilla, dark chocolate and cassis characters leading to a cedary finish lengthened by time in French oak barriques.
Antipasto, rare char-grilled lamb cutlets, pizza and olives.
