The secret to the success of the Coonawarra Wine Region is the rich, red soils of the Terra Rossa. These soils are the engine room of the region providing powerful and distinct wines. Reynella clone Cabernet Sauvignon grapes taken from low yielding 20-30 year old vines were used for this wine. Crushed / destemmed with a cultured yeast added and 7-9 days on skins. The parcel spent 9 months in varying ages of French oak. This wine is an excellent example of the outstanding results possible, when an allegiance between growers and winemakers creates their best expression of the region, varietal and vintage. Cellar potential of 7-8 years.
