Di Giorgio

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Awesome wine. I picked it up at the winery in Coonawarra, South East South Australia a year and a half ago. It really impressed me then. Even more so now. AuD30/bottle! Fresh vibrant red fruit up from, raspberry, pie cherry and strawberry, with well integrated tannins from cigar tannins and dark oak. Full bodied, great depth. Excellent lingering finish. — 4 days ago

Quarisa

Mrs Q Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Fine QPR #cabernetsauvignon from #coonawarra - light vanilla toast notes backed by a broad well of cassis and blackberry preserves with soft spice. Jammy trap is avoided with lovely acidity on the palate to balance the up-front fruit and fuzzy tannins to keep things interesting. Top tier Cab for $10 at Costco. — 17 days ago

Wynns Coonawarra Estate

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

From the days back when they used a simple bottle with a shallow punt. And what a classically crafted Coonawarra cab this is. At 22 years of age the opening aromas showed no sign of mustiness or forgotten old books. It carries a spirit of youthfulness within its soft and supple exterior. Drinking so beautifully now! Soft mint, eucalyptus, menthol hints opening to tart black currant, dried violets, roasted fennel, cocoa and cured meat. The velvety soft palate fades in intensity towards the back, but the intrigue of each sip makes up for the lack of length. Great vintage for this wine. — 11 days ago

Majella

Coonawarra Shiraz 1991

First vintage bottled by Majella says that back label. Great flavor and depth.
Earthy, irony, meaty, tobacco leaves, black pepper, potpourri and coriander.
Smooth, but not long.
12.5%
Again a nice 1991 from a producer that had not expectations at that time.

Balnaves of Coonawarra

Cabernet Merlot 2016

"dark red and color, the nose is intense with aromas of blackberry, blueberry and anise combined with delicate smokey coffee French oak. The palate is medium-bodied with a soft round Merlot feel and black fruit flavors, with a touch of licorice and blueberry." — 18 days ago

Rymill

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Tobacco, olive, blackcurrent with a hint of eucalypt, savoury with a lovely spread of grainy tannin. Fruit perhaps a bit muted if I was pushed to complain! — a month ago
