The Cigar is a name coined by winemakers to describe a cigar-shaped strip of rich red terra rossa soil in Coonawarra. It is this, combined with the region's long, cool ripening season, that results in a rich, but structured and particularly herbaceous expression of Cabernet Sauvignon.
This is a lovely bright, fresh Coonawarra Cabernet. Vibrant, deep magenta in colour. The aromatics are rich with blue and black fruits, notes of spice and warm, comforting aromas of cedar, strawberry compote and sandalwood. The palate is expressive with blackcurrant, plum and clove spice, melding with dark chocolate and ripe fruits. The wine has a beautiful structure with fine tannins and balanced acidity ensuring longevity.
