2014 “Coonawarra” Cabernet Sauvignon
Closure: Screw Top
Grape Variety: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Growing Region: Coonawarra
Vintage: Fruit for our 2014 Coonawarra Series Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the famous terra rossa strip of soil in the earlier-ripening north-western part of Coonawarra. The 2014 growing season was recorded as one of the most drawn out of recent years, with picking lasting from February until mid May. The resulting fruit has been treated to an extended ripening period which has translated to good flavour, colour and tannin development, putting vintage’14 on the charts as “classic Coonawarra”.
Nose: Classic Cabernet nose showing an abundance of dark berry fruits, a touch of cedar and a slick of liquorice.
Palate: Well structured palate with ample tannins and plush berry notes, milk chocolate and a touch of cherry cola.
Pairing: Hearty and rich dishes, including short ribs, meat balls, roasted duck, or local venison.
Cellaring: Drink now or age beautifully for up to 10 years
