    The value and quality of Coonawarra was first recognised by D. A. Tolley who was a purveyor of oak barrels and winemaking gear in 1908, where he gained access to the wines of Coonawarra. To quote from early Tolley records, Coonawarra wines were distinctly different, dark purple in colour, they exuded a lovely perfume whilst fermenting. Nothing has changed. Phoenix is an early drinking Coonawarra Cabernet treated to an open fermentation in traditional heading down vessels, followed by a regimen of barrel ferments to achieve balance and integration. The completed wine are treated to an extended maturation in a selection of new and prior use French oak barriques.
    Bright crimson with dark purple hues. Fragrant aromas of violet, black currant leaf, ripe wild berry and varietal Cabernet spice over complex, well integrated oak fragrances. Mulberry and blackberry dominate the tight palate, enhanced by silky grape tannin and elegant complex cedar oak. A very generous middle palate scented with hints of liquorice and chocolate linger long on the finish, made to enjoy in its youth.
