Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Clean, fresh, sea shore nose! Liquorice and a lovely intensity of berries, dried raspberries and touch of vanilla Very clean, fresh wine. Lovely, young vibrancy to this, which gives a perfect texture on the mouth and long aftertaste. Happy to drink this now, but it will age, the fruit keeps coming back and tantalising my taste buds.

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep & bright. Lovely purity & freshness, elegantly toasty. Fleshy, sweet fruit, beautifully balanced and fine, subtle, understated yet intense, and highly drinkable. A very classy style.

Anthony Rose

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Mid ruby, betraying a touch of leafiness of aroma moderated by some astutely judged vanilla oak that adds roundness and a degree of complexity to the juicy cassis fruit flavours which are etched with bright acidity in almost Bordeaux cru classe mode. Excellent wine. Very well-made.
