The 2002 in Coonawarra was unusually cool and dry with yields well below the average. Our Shiraz achieved excellent concentration of flavor and balance. Maturation in predominantly French oak barriques for 24 motnhs has contributed a subtle chocolate and cedar complexity to typical regional characters of ripe berries, durty mulberry and plum. Fine grained tannins complement a memorable lingering finish.

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.
