Koonowla Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Koonowla is a brand that unashamedly hangs its reputation on the Clare Valley region producing wines that are a combination of traditional Clare traditions and modern winemaking. This Cabernet is all about structure and nobility using single vineyard fruit to shine. It combines fruitcake and mulberry aromas with gentle oak and spice before delivering a long and flavoursome palate. It’s a wine that could do with a quick decant before serving with a leg of lamb.

Winemaker's Notes

The Cabernet varietals character in this wine is powerfully typical Clare, the colour is deep purple with red hues and the nose has herb tones with ripe berry fruit, lifted mulberry and plum pudding characters gently supported by rich oak and spice, The palate is flavoursome, powerful and long with fine tannins and balanced acidity.

Some sweet and sour aspects, opening with sweet cassis berry on to the mid-palate, then herb, olive and earth on the finish and aftertaste.

Firm black fruits and bitter chocolate offset by touches of mocha oak; interesting style.
