The cool and extended 2002 ripening season has seen the development of concentrated dark berry flavours and lifted fruit spice. The fruit is soft and full on the palate leading to a long lingering finish. Careful cellaring will see these characteristics develop wonderfully in the bottle. ABV 13.5% 

Taste & Aroma

Clean, red berry fruits; smooth, medium-bodied; oak well balanced and integrated.

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.
