Region: South Australia
Grape(s): Cabernet Sauvignon
Style: Medium-bodied red wine aged in new French oak
Very tasty and enjoyable with no decant. Nice classic warm vintage profile, juicy dark plummy black currant profile. Enjoyable, not challenging, and good to go already – the benefit of the vintage. Will of course change over the next few years but it’s so accessible now with soft ripe tannins and juicy fruit, so why wait?
Studied in Bordeaux and California, Sue Bell concentrates all her efforts on small parcels of fruit and produces wine in Tasmania, Coonawarra, Heathcote and Wrattonbully. With her academic background focused on agriculture, even though she buys all her fruit, she still has the advantage of advising her growers on how to improve production. Naturally, this Shiraz was planted on a perfect location, greatly benefiting from the rich terra rossa soils, formed through the transformation of limestone over thousands of years.”
