96+ - 97 Points - Stuart McCloskey “The bouquet is brooding and requires a good 4-6 hours in the decanter before tackling. Aromatic with a lovely floral perfume, dried herbs, mint, bay leaf, graphite – there’s a salty / mineral feel to the nose which intrigues the senses. Medium-bodied, cool-climate feel with the sweet fruit cloaked with dried herbs and spices. There’s a crispness to the fruit – cranberry with juicy acidity. Iodine and a real marine feel to the finish. The tannins flow beautifully with the fruit and offer just the right level of support. Detailed and everything seems very natural. Very satisfying and incredibly long. My score is unkind – I will retackle in a few weeks as the original sample bottle showed much better. Too much work and not enough time to enjoy wine which takes its toll! Drink now through to 2025”.

97 Points - Magdalena Sienkiewicz "Sampled after two hours of decanting. Exuberant nose filled with dark cherries, mulberry, crème de cassis and a hefty dose of dried herbs, mint and tobacco. Beautiful notes of cedar and cigar box emanate with time in the glass. Again, the palate mirrors the perfume with a great savoury drive and a generous addition of rich minerals. The acidity is extremely well-balanced which brings a wonderful lift to this dark and expansive Cabernet. Tannins are fine-grained and beautifully integrated adding another layer of complexity. Dense and structured, it will provide many years of drinking pleasure."

Zalto Denk-Art Bordeaux Glass

The Zalto Bordeaux glass is recommended for weightier style reds, probably our most widely used glass when tasting in house, this glass is great for many different wines. The large bowl helping aerate and soften tannins whilst accentuating the wine's depth and concentration. The Bordeaux glass is the ideal choice for Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Zinfandel, Bordeaux or Rhône style blends and many other red wines. Surprisingly, it is also the glass of choice for oaked Chardonnay, the shape of the bowl accentuating the balance of ripe fruits and oak.

In Rymill's own words "We believe Australia’s best Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Coonawarra, which is why over fifty percent of our vineyards are planted to this variety. The unique combination of the region’s famous terra rossa soil, and a long, cool ripening season results in grapes with exceptional flavour, intensity and structure. This is why Coonawarra has become internationally renowned for producing premium wines, in particular, Cabernet Sauvignon."

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.
