Quick Overview

This wine offers a focused and streamlined palate. It reveals flavours of sweet fruit with a touch of raspberry and chocolate. Integrated with dry and long tannins, it offers a fruit driven finale. You will be surprised at this style of Cabernet coming from McLaren Vale.

The vineyard runs alongside Coppermine Road and rarely crops above one tonne per acre. The grapes are “basket pressed and transferred to a mixture of new and used French oak barriques to complete fermentation.”

Coppermine Road runs parallel to our very best Cabernet vineyard in McLaren Vale, just metres from the winery, cellar door and restaurant. Planted to an almost extinct clone, this vineyard rarely yields greater than one tonne to the acre.

The Characteristics

A classic Cabernet in every sense. The nose, allowed time to open evolves from mushroom, olive and salami in to more typical purple fruits, blackcurrant and violets, backed by ripples of freshly torn mint, sage and oregano. A rich, but chiselled palate follows, framed by layers of long, chalky tannins. This sleek, seamless wine has an unmistakeable air of class. Enticing in youth with a promise of greater depth and elegance to reward careful, patient cellaring.
