He diversified into viticulture in 1968 with an experimental vineyard and pursued studies at oenology before establishing Rymill Estate in 1990. Parcels of choice Cabernet Sauvignon are selected from fully mature vines and treated to a rich barrel fermentation to produce a full bodied, richly flavoured Coonawarra wine. Matured up to two years in a selection of seasoned and new French oak, principally 225 litre barriques from trees planted up to three centuries ago to provide timber for the French navy.
Good intensity and depth of colour. Undeniably Coonawarra with its pleasant dusty character, fresh red fruit aromas and hints of tomato leaf. Incredibly complex and absolutely delectable with flavours of berries, strawberry seed, homemade plum jam, orange peel and savoury spice. Well integrated oak, a slight smoky character and good tannin structure, it ticks all the boxes.
