NOSE:A fragrant, intensely varietal nose showing warm compote of red and dark berry fruits, with mulberry, chocolate, delicate mint, and ripe blackcurrants. It is unscored by subtle notes of cedar oak, olive, and light dried tobacco beautifully melding with the varietal fruit aromas.

Vineyard Notes: Sourced from vineyards located on the distinguished, well-drained terra rossa soils of Coonawarra, known for growing complex, elegant and intensely flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vintage Conditions:
The 2016 vintage was preceded by a dry growing season, and relied on subsoil moisture and careful irrigation to maintain the vines though the warm weather from October to March. Cooler nights and mild days at the end of vintage extended the ripening period, favouring the development of good flavour definition and riper, distinctive tannins.
Winemaker Notes: Vineyard batches were crushed and destemmed separately, then fermented in small open fermenters for 7 to 10 days, with a mix of plunging and gentle pumping over used to optimise extraction of flavour, colour and tannin.

Maturation:
12 months’ maturation in 81% seasoned and 19% new French oak has enhanced structure and complexity.
Food Pairing: Gold Label Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon is great with seared rib-eye with caramelised shallots, or slow-roasted Moroccan lamb with pomegranate and mint.

Peak Drinking:
Enjoyable on release or will develop complex, mellow flavours with careful cellaring over the next decade.
