Good colour; 30 months between vintage and bottling is an unusually long time for a $20 wine, but it has suffered no ill effects, with much of the time spent in tank, not oak. You can't expect much more from a Coonawarra cabernet at this price.Drink by 2028
Colour: Good depth of colour with lively purple hues.
Nose: Attractive nose of blackcurrant, red fruits and hints of regional mint. Small amount of oak maturation gives a subtle sweet spice to the fruit aromas.
Palate: A soft full palate expressing sweet dark berry fruit and light oak flavours.
Vintage conditions: The 2013 Coonawarra Vintage was excellent, characterised by a warm, dry summer followed by a cool autumn nights. A warm, fast flowering period saw an even fruit set with high berry numbers per bunch. This combined with a late break and ideal summer temperatures extending well into April, allowed good conditions for ripening and harvest.
Peak drinking: This wine is made to drink now, however will benefit with short cellaring of 3-5 years.
