Ranked #2 of 18 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon from Coonawarra
Bright purple and youthful. Blueberry pie, mulberries and a faint whiff of cedary oak. Ethereal glide on the palate. Red fruits mixing with blue - lovely oak. It's balanced and refined. Delicious
Drink: 2019 to 2031
93 Points James Halliday
Sourced from a number of blocks, open and closed ferments, French oak (20% new) for around 14 months. This feels like a slightly finer, more restrained release than recent vintages. It's red-fruited rather than blackcurrant or blackberry in aroma and flavour, with mint, licorice and herbal characters in play. Will no doubt warrant higher points as it develops. Drink to 2029.
