Sir Ian Botham Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Colour: Intense, dark blood red with ruby and garnet hues.
Nose: The aroma’s immediately announce the variety, displaying intense characters of blackcurrant, red berry, black olive and a subtle hint of menthol. Combined with the nutty oak aroma’s, this wine delivers a complex yet elegant bouquet.
Palate: The palate of this wine has a perfectly aligned structure, weight and intensity creating a backbone for longevity. The aromas on the nose follow through onto the palate and these full bodied, spicy flavours combined with pin point acidity and firm, grainy tannins deliver a wine of stature and grace. This wine will continue to develop in complexity and interest for as long as you can manage to cellar it.
Peak Drinking: This wine will continue to develop in bottle if cellared carefully and will drink well for up to 12 years from vintage.
