Tasting Notes:

2012 was regarded as an excellent vintage from Coonawarra. This Merlot has all the outstanding qualities of Coonawarra from a great year.
Deep red with purple hues and aromas of earthy and woody herb characters.
The palate is beautifully developed through additional ageing with subtle oak and chocolaty complexity. A stylish wine with an attractive finish. Cellar potential of another 6-8 years.

Sam Kim | 93 points
‘A beautifully maturing merlot, the complex bouquet shows dark plum, spiced cherry, dried herb, cedar and tanned leather characters. The palate offers elegant fruit weight and intensity, beautifully framed by fine, chalky tannins. The wine is harmonious and flavoursome, and finishes persistent and delicately drying.’

Wine Region: 

The Coonawarra wine region is centred on the town of Coonawarra in the Limestone Coast zone of South Australia. It is known for the Cabernet Sauvignon wines produced on its "terra rossa" soil. Coonawarra is an Aboriginal word meaning "Honeysuckle". It is about 380 km southeast of Adelaide, close to the border with Victoria.
