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.

Koonowla wines comes from a very special place in our hearts, their home one of the Clare Valley’s thriving historic treasures. Our Cabernet Sauvignon tells the same story: traditional varietal qualities in an exciting modern style. Enticing Cabernet aromas, crimson berries and attractive backdrop mint embrace with a delicious juiciness. Purity. Contemporary. Unique.
