Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia

Two eminent Coonawarra families have husbanded the distinguished vines for decades, they yield harvests which are called upon for inclusion by the most prestigious brands in the land. RRP $25, we retail this splendid Coonawarra Cabernet at a sharply priced $22, available now $15.80, arrives fully labelled and guaranteed to please, without any delivery fee by the dozen, anywhere in Australia.
The choicest parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon are harvested off fully mature vines, fermented on skins over the course of a week and pumped over twice daily to ensure optimal extraction of flavour and tannin. Batches are pressed off while still slightly sweet into a selection of French and American oak 500L puncheons, 300L hogsheads and 225L barriques for completion of ferments, a course of malolactic and an extravagant eighteen months maturation.
Deep scarlet red. Varietal leaf and classic cassis nose, blueberries and black cherry, bramble and Coonawarra mint. A solid palate of black currant, cassis and dark cherry flavours, the complexity of barrel ferment and aged mocha oak, all supported by a length of fine licorice tannins, resolving on a finish of lingering lozenge berry fruit.
