Highgate Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawarra, 2017

Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a classic example of a classic
style grown in the famous Terra Rossa soils of Coonawarra – one of
Australia’s most oldest and most respected Cabernet regions.
Matured in French oak for 6 months, this wine is a deep clear red with aromas of intense blackcurrant, hints of redcurrant, tobacco, cedar spice and subtle tea-leaf scent.
On the palate it is silky and rounded, with flavours of rich blackcurrant, persimmon, and rhubarb – lighter red sweet fruit.
Flavours of tobacco and cedar contribute to the wine’s satisfying depth, and fine tannins give it elegant structure and mouth feel. Attractive medium finish with lingering dark fruit flavours.

Food and wine pairing: Lamb hotpot, Middle Eastern cuisine, classic English roast lamb.
Cellar for up to 5 years (2024).

Coonawarra vintage report: A cool and wet growing season for the 2017 vintage resulted in a more traditional Coonawarra vintage. Cabernet was a standout, with excellent colour, concentration and tannins.
