DiGiorgio Family Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

At this moment in time, Coonawarra is one of the few wine regions in Australia I’ve not been to. Luckily, all this is going to change as Mrs Drew and I will be headed there in January 2017 for the Coonawarra Cup. Anyway, here’s a look

DiGiorgio Family Wines Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawarra 2014

18 Months in French and American oak, 35% new, 35% second use and 30% old oak. Sweet cassis, blackberry and blueberry tempered by soft mint and tobacco. Immediately approachable, oak treatment gives a gently gently approach. The tannins are sandy, plentiful and grippy, and remain well after the easy blackcurrant and smoky flavours have gone. Pleasant enough regional example.

RRP: $26

Alc: 13.5%
