One of the perks of having our Aussie Buyer stationed Down Under is that he’s always first on the scene when there’s a great deal to be had. That’s certainly true of this premium Coonawarra Cabernet Shiraz with its abundance of rich, dark fruit.
In the Outback, Shiraz rules as the most widely planted black grape variety. However, in the Limestone Coast of Coonawarra, Cabernet Sauvignon is king. In this narrow strip of land, famous for its distinctive ‘Terra Rossa’ soil, Cabernet is fruit driven and tobacco-laced with great ageing potential. We reserve our Daisy and the Tambourine Man label for some of the best deals our Aussie Buyer, Dan Parrott, discovers. This year it’s a terrific Cabernet Shiraz made from low yielding, old vines. Matured in a combination of new and seasoned oak barrels, it’s a rich and expressive full-bodied red with an abundance of spicy, dark red fruit. Powerful and generous in its youth, it’ll gain complexity over the next few years, if you can resist it!
"Coonawarra Cabernet is fruit rich and powerful, with the addition of Shiraz its delicious!"
