2020 Koonowla Bass Hill Blend

2020 Koonowla
Bass Hill Blend

Every vintage, we approach this blend with an open mind to create a wine that truly reflects the finest expression from our Bass Hill Vineyard.

Inspired by the great wines of France’s Bordeaux region and crafted to feature authentic Clare Valley character, this year’s blend showcases a partnership of Cabernet Sauvignon (36%), Malbec (22%),

Petit Verdot (22%), Carmenere (10%) and Cabernet Franc (10%).

Deeply aromatic with black currant and dark fruits of the forest to the fore, subtle French oak complexities, and a succulent palate with fine-grained tannins shape a wine of genuine class and longevity.
