The 2018 Coonawarra Series Cabernet Sauvignon is made from fruit sourced from three vineyards throughout Coonawarra. Majority comes from southern Coonawarra, including parcels from the estate ‘Abbey Vineyard' and also our viticulturist Brett Williams’ vineyard. Completing the blend is fruit from Tim Kidman’s property in northern Coonawarra.
Colour: Deep red core with purple hues. Aroma: Rich aromas of blueberry and blackcurrant, with soft vanilla and spice hints. Palate: A medium bodied palate with dark fruits of cherry and blackberry at the core. Soft, fine tannins, chocolate and cedar, a slight earthiness and toasty hints move through to a persistent finish.
"Parker’s renaissance as a premium Aussie Cabernet producer is complete. My featured estate wine is very good indeed with superbly fresh, bright, cassis and mulberry fruit leading the way and it is perfectly balanced throughout. The finish is honed and refreshing but not overly tannic or dry which is incredible bearing in mind its youth. I sense that an awful lot of the following wine wells in the core of the Estate cuvée and this gives it a degree of flair and integrity rarely found in fifteen quid wines." - 100 BEST AUSTRALIAN WINES 18/19 - MATTHEW JUKES
