Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia
Outstanding Langtons Classification. A masculine wine, an expression of controlled vinous power. Ripe dark berries, hints of dusty mulberry and spicy plums with subtle vanilla, mocha and chocolate oak flavours are richly interwoven. Fine grained, softly assertive tannins complement lingering flavours. The destiny of Odyssey is to not just capture the essence of Coonawarra Cabernet but to define it.
Odyssey is the archetypal, flagship Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, produced from the region's distinctive Terra rossa soils and crafted with the luxury of great attention to detail. This multi award winning wine has a string of international trophies to its name including Best Australian Red and the Frescobaldi Trophy for Best Vintage Red Wine, awarded twice, at the UK International Wine & Spirit Competition. Following a small batch viinification, Odyssey was treated to an extended maturation for three years in small oak 225 litre barriques of which approximately 40% were new French and 42% were new American oak barrels. Other barrels were second fill and predominantly French oak. Alcohol 14.0%
Dark plum red colour with purple red tinges. A rich and complex array of ripe fruit and oak matured aromas. Dusty mulberry and ripe plum with subtle black olive fruits are laced with sweet vanilla bean, smoky and roasted mocha oak aromas. An intricately layered palate structure of ripe fruit and oak flavours, seamlessly combined by an extravagant maturation in the finest oak.
