Di Giorgio recognise they’re firmly part of Coonawarra, with their winery on the site of some of the original John Riddoch plantings, from over 115 years ago. The majority of the vineyard was planted in the 1960’s and the 1970’s.
Di Giorgio, Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawarra, 2015
Briar, bramble, blackberry, blueberry coffee syrup, strap licorice, black olive, gum tree trunk. Generous, round and spread with pletinful fine tannin, the sweet fruit arches sharply into burnt coffee essence and lingering blackberry. Finishes with reasonable length. I think leaving it for a little time for it to come together wouldn’t hurt.
