95 Points - James Halliday, Wine Companion

  • A cracking Cabernet blend from an iconic South Australian producer. At this price, we obviously can't reveal who they are, but suffice to say, the wine is a flagship drink, that delivers year on year.

    73% Cabernet, 19% Merlot and 8% Shiraz go into the blend, which just sings of Coonawarra. From a single vineyard site, this wine has been meticulously handled every step of the way, and then given a leisurely 22 months maturation in oak, before bottling.

    Halliday gave this wine 95 Points, which would certainly justify the usual price tag of $75. So to be able to pick this little beauty up for only $39.99 in a 6 pack is a serious opportunity not to be missed!

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The beautifully ripe fruit was destemmed, crushed and chilled to fermenter. The must (skins, pulp and seeds) was cold soaked for four days before being inoculated with our chosen yeast strain to conduct the primary fermentation on skins.  The alcoholic fermentation lasts about 2 weeks, and the wine was left on skins for another few days. The wine was then drained off, the skins pressed and the combined wine pumped to barrel. We also added bacteria at this stage to conduct the malo-lactic fermentation (MLF), the conversion of hard malic acid to softer lactic acid. The 2013 red spent 22 months in oak.

    TASTING NOTES

    Black currant and plum are complemented by spice and black fruits, with cedar and abundant soft sandy tannins. Rich and full, it also displays Coonawarra elegance and suppleness, and is a vintage that is immediately drinkable, but one that will age gracefully for some years.

    'The hue is very good, fresh and bright; an elegant wine with vibrant cassis-accented flavours.'
