The 2018 Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon wine by Di Giorgio Family has a herby, cassis aroma that is typical of Cabernet in this part of the world. In the mouth, there’s good concentration of sweet plum and black fruit flavours, with sweet spices and a fragrant vanilla and wood lift. This Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon wine has violet notes come through on the pleasant finish. A more elegant style of Cabernet Sauvignon that will match well with a variety of dishes.
The 2018 vintage saw moderate yields combined with a mild summer and consequently long, slow ripening season, perfect for Cabernet Sauvignon. This enabled us to produce wines of beautiful fruit with typical Coonawarra elegance and balance. The softening effect of traditional open top fermentation, and the maturity of the vineyards have given this wine great mouth feel. It is ready to consume now, though it’s Coonawarra pedigree suggests that it will drink well, if cellared in good conditions, for at least 8-10 years.
