The vineyard is protected from rainfall variation by a fully integrated drip irrigation system, which includes four bores and five licences to pump from the Murrumbidgee River flowing along the southern border of the property. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are harvested from Cookoothama Vineyard throughout the cool of night and delivered in small batches to the winery. Grapes are crushed, inoculated and pumped over in traditional style to avoid the extraction of bitter tannins. Components are then transferred to a combination of seasoned and new French and American oak barrels for maturation prior to the final assemblage.
Deep red with youthful purple hue. Aromas of plum and blackberry, infused by hints of spice, herbs and dark chocolate. Concentrated flavours of red berry fruits, mocha and spice over ripe silky tannins and well integrated oak. Cookoothama makes a great food wine that's versatile enough to compliment a wide range of cuisines, casseroles and meats.
