2019 Koonowla Cabernet Sauvignon

2019 Koonowla
Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet sauvignon holds a special place in the heart of Clare Valley. Celebrated as one of the region’s great red wine styles, it is bold, robust, and full of character. In its own way, our cabernet fits perfectly into the profound Australian landscapes of the region – massive gum trees, sweeping hills, endless horizons that linger in your memory long aſter every visit.

'Deeply flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon showing off all the dark berry fruit spectrum, sweet but with enough savoury elements to offset that stuff, a little gummy tannin to get the palate moving and a long, fresh finish. The bouquet is great too - one to stick your beak in and sniff for ages and feel good. Bigger framed Cab Sauv done well"

Tasting Notes

Colour

Dark, deep purple highlights

Aroma

Crushed blackcurrant, dark choc-mint

Palate

Plenty of serious cabernet expression, dense and concentrated black berry flavours with lots of background interest like black olive paste, fennel and that same chocolate and mint, which also adds to the wine’s trademark, mouth-filling texture.

Food

Seafood of course, from oysters to salt and pepper squid and of course the best whiting
