DESCRIPTION
  • Trademark Coonawarra wine, bucking the trend for the light and ethereal style, replacing it with a wine of substance, power and guts. This is an epic release, monumental in girth, it has the puppy fat of youth right now (hyper blue and purple colour) that will unleash its true potential with years in the cellar.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The ideal vintage conditions set this wine up from its inception to achieve high standards. All the classic Coonawarra hallmarks are evident in the wine and ensure absolute pleasure on consumption. On the nose lovely dark berry characters are finely integrated with the subtle French oak nuances. The Coonawarra hallmarks continue through to the palate with long fine tannins giving structure to the wine and supporting beautifully balanced fruit flavours entwined with lively spice structure. A fine wine for any cellar.

    The 2016 growing season was very dry, with below average winter rains. A warm October advanced the season through to harvest by two weeks. Good flower set in November resulted in slightly above average yields and the mild days and cool nights in February and March extended the ripening period producing well balanced fruit across all varieties. Despite the early season the fruit developed full palate depth, lovely tannins, complex fruit characters and excellent colour. Another very good vintage from Bowen Estate.
     
  • REVIEWS

    'Deep, dark red/purple colour with a youthful tinge, the bouquet powerful with ripe blackberry fruit and good oak augmentation. It's very full-bodied and firm: a big wine with power and persistence, and major ageing potential. Awesome power and tight focus. A top cabernet.'
