2014 BackVintage Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

A wet Winter was followed by dry, cold and at times wet and windy periods during Spring. Consequently, timing for flowering and fruit set was variable. The first part of Summer was quite hot but the weather did soften towards the second half being more cool and mild. March and most of April were mostly dry with warm to mild days and cool nights allowing ripeness and importantly, the fruits flavours, to develop.

The 2014 vintage has yielded strong red wines. The dominant wine for this Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from 100% Coonawarra Cabernet parcels.


Tasting Notes

Colour
Deep purple red

Nose
Sweet blackberry and blackcurrant and a hint of crushed leaf. Subtle spice and vanilla from oak

Structure / Palate
Medium bodied and stylish, yet with good depth of dark berry flavour. Fine tannins, finishing with good length.

Like many Coonawarra wines, the fine tannins allow one to enjoy this wine now. It will nevertheless gain cedary complexity until at least 2022. Beautiful with lamb, duck or veal dishes
