Tasting Notes:

98 Point Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

Aromas of rich fresh dark fruits and attractive herbs and savoury oak. Distinct Cabernet characters of dark chocolate, fine succulent tannins and dark berries flow through with complex intensity, superb balance and mouthfilling fruit weight. The long more-ish finish is delightfully satisfying. This is quintessential Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.


98 Point Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 

This Cabernet Sauvignon embodies a fruit-driven wine with bold notes of blackcurrant, plum, and cherry. Touches of subtle oak, chocolate, and vanilla bean complete the rich round palate.


Technical:

98 Point Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

After a low yielding vintage in 2020, everything came together for the 2021 vintage. Mild and clear weather from spring saw excellent vine growth, and ideal flowering conditions led to optimal berry set. As such yields across the region were higher than average, one of the highest in recent years. Despite being a La Nina year and the Indian Ocean Dipole being negative, both normally indicative of wet weather for the growing season, most of the rain held off, with only a few small rain events that didn't result in any lingering 

moisture or increase disease pressure. This allowed for an exceptionally long ripening period for Cabernet Sauvignon, producing thick-skinned smallberries that reached tannin and flavour maturity in balance with sugar ripeness and acid concentration. In short, 2021 can be expected to be remembered as one of the great vintages in Coonawarra.

The parcel was destemmed to a rotary fermenter. Fermented using Lamothe Excellence XR yeast, between 22-25*C, with Lallemand Alpha malolactic bacteria added after a day's primary ferment. Few rotations of fermenter, largely relying on drain down/pump over operations to manage cap and maceration. After 2 weeks maceration on skins, wine pressed to stainless steel tank to finish malolactic ferment and last couple of grams sugar. Wine then racked and sulphured, settled and racked again to barrel, approx 25% new french oak hogsheads, remainder seasoned french oak hogsheads and barriques. Wine racked regularly to maintain freshness in barrel. Wine spent 13 months in oak before final barrel selection confirmed, with final balance sitting at 18% new oak, remainder older seasoned oak. The result is a classic 

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon that whilst drinking well now has a cellar potential of 10+ years.


Accolades & Awards:

98 Point Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

98 Point Rated - Winestate Magazine  

An uncomplicated mint driven cabernet with a huge concentration of black fruits seamlessly integrated with the cigar box-like oak and fine tannins that linger across the length of the palate.

96 Point Rated – Ken Gargett Winepilot

An exceptional Coonawarra Cabernet, from an outstanding vintage, this is very well priced and certain to provide pleasure over the next ten to twenty years, if well cellared. The colour is near black with a purple rim. Oak is evident, a pleasing mix of the vanillin and cedar, all integrating well. Notes of chocolate, blackcurrants, cloves, cassis, bergamot, licorice and tobacco leaves. This is in great form. Finely balanced, excellent length, silky tannins. A cracking example of what this variety can do from Coonawarra.

95 Point Rated -  Sam Kim Wine Orbit 

Classically styled and splendidly appealing, the wine shows cassis, violet, subtle tobacco and spicy oak characters. The concentrated palate delivers excellent depth and power, while remaining gracious and refined with a sustained structured finish. At its best: 2024 to 2038.
