A compelling Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2004 Coach House Block was aged in 100% new French Taransaud barrels. Its blue/black/purple color is followed by beautiful aromas of graphite, acacia flowers, blackberries, and creme de cassis. Full-bodied, dense, and rich, this amazing Cabernet admirably demonstrates what heights this varietal can achieve in the Barossa. Cellar it for 3-4 years and enjoy it over the following 2-3 decades.
Branson Coach House was purchased by Two Hands Wine in 2001 after the original proprietor Malcolm Aspden passed away. The wine we know today is made by the same winemaker from Two Hands, Matt Wenk.
Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
