The 'Coppermine Road' Cabernet Sauvignon

  • Details

    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.

     

    As far as vintages of The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon go, you would need to travel some way back in time to find a wine of such balance and harmony. The cooler, slightly wetter vintage has marked this wine in a very positive way. Allow a few minutes in glass for the full array of aromas to evolve. Over the course of this period your sense of smell will be led from savoury, cedar, cigarbox, sage, oregano and ferrous notes eventually through to lifted violets, blackcurrant, boysenberry, mulberry, mint and citrus peel. The palate will similarly start out reasonably tight but will open generously, presenting opulent fruit on the attack, matched with a medium bodied mid palate and complemented and drawn out through ripples of fine, chalky tannins.
