2002 Lawrence Victor Estate
Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine aptly reflects the combination of the red soils and the prevailing vintage conditions.  Extremely low cropping levels and a long cool ripening period have produced a wine which has cassis and mint, for which Coonawarra is world famous; just jumping out of the glass.

Fermentation and maturation in French oak barrels has added mocha and roasted-nut like characters.  The palate is richly flavoured with currant and plums.  It's supple tannins and sweet fruit combine to give a wine which will remain great drinking over the next 5 to 7 years.
