The 'Coppermine Road' Cabernet Sauvignon
Coppermine Road runs parallel to our very best Cabernet vineyard in McLaren Vale, just metres from the winery, cellar door and restaurant. Planted to an almost extinct clone, this vineyard rarely yields greater than one tonne to the acre.
Dark and intense Cabernet. This wine has personality - a loud and powerful aroma. Very fragrant with green and red capsicum, savoury spices, tomato leaves, blackcurrant and sage. The flavours follow suit, with red fruits, fresh cherries, capsicum, tomatoes and Asian spices. There’s some white and black pepper to be found towards the back palate. A long, lingering and persistent wine that sits with you for a long time. The exciting fine grain tannins have developed over time making for a wine that can be enjoyed now, but promises huge potential. Will cellar for 20 to 30 years, easily. A lovely wine on its own accord, but suggest pairing with a rich meat dish like lamb or steak.
While enjoyable in youth, this wine will reach its full potential with bottle age up to at least 20 years. The considerable structure and depth will ensure that the fruit characters will develop over time revealing more complexity and providing immense interest. This wine is best stored in an environment free of direct sunlight and with consistent temperatures between 10°C and 15°C.
