The Cigar is a name coined by Coonawarra Vignerons to describe the unique cigar-shaped strip of rich red terra rossa soil.
Home to some of Australia’s most famous vineyards, the secret of Coonawarra lies in the intimate bond between the terra rossa soil, limestone layers, pure artisan water and a long cool ripening season.
The aromatics display baking spices, plum, liquorice and blackberries.
The palate is rich and supple with great depth. Dark fruits, such as blueberry, are complemented by a savoury mid palate, showing tapenade and dried herbs. There are lovely bitter chocolate tannins and the recognisable structure and architecture that Coonawarra Cabernet is famous for.
The palate crosses the line between savoury and fruit sweetness beautifully and will be a lovely youthful wine as well as maturing into an elegant and structural older wine.
