2012 Petaluma Coonawarra Cabernet Merlot

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Petaluma remains one of the true icons of the Adelaide Hills and this wine blends the best Cabernet and Merlot from Coonawarra to produce a wine that draws on the best of the varieties. We look forward to this release with feverish anticipation. It’s loaded with blackcurrant, and red fruits, as well as complexing oak characters. The palate shows all that is great about the blend, vivid cassis and redcurrant before a poised and wonderfully weighted palate with great concentration and tannins. A perfect candidate for the cellar or the ideal wine for roast lamb.

Winemaker's Notes

A deep brooding, dense rich dry red. Ripe plums and black currant aromas and flavours are backed up with subtle delicate oak. The palate is full, luscious and rich with loads of black fruits and cedar oak. Abundant tannins and sweet fruit, typical of low crop Merlot frame the finish.
