Established 1908, Redman's Coonawarra are still made by the Redman brothers from fruit grown to the original family parcels.

Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

Peter Riddoch Rymill, great grandson of Coonawarra founder John Riddoch was a keen equestrian. He studied Science at Adelaide University and developed new breeds of cattle. 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.
