95 Points - Jeremy Oliver

An ethereal perfume of spicy cloves, cinnamon and licorice overlies deep aromas of raspberries, cassis and plums, with undertones of white pepper, rosemary and sweet vanilla/cedar oak. Long, smooth and sumptuous, it’s deep, pristine fruit, creamy oak and leathery game meat-like complexity culminate in a lingering finish of balance and harmony. Very stylish, very classy.

Region

Situated in the Limestone Coast zine of South Australia, the Coonawarra wine region is synonymous with Cabernet Sauvignon; so much so that success with other grape varieties is often overlooked. It is relatively new to wine-making - from 1890 to 1945 most of the wine was distilled into brandy - but today the famous terra rossa (or red soils) on which all the early vineyards were planted produce predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon wines, full of plum and blackcurrant fruit.
