impenetrable inky black core with a very deep bright dark red black hue. Pronounced ripe blackcurrant aromas sit alongside a hint of liquorice with an undercard of subtle black olive, cedar tobacco characters and faint spicy bay leaf notes. Tightly built and unyielding the palate has flavours of blackcurrant and subtle inky liquorice followed by earthy black olives, cedar tobacco characters and spice. Dry finish with firm tannins and vibrant acidity on the finish.

Redman Wines boasts a long history of growing and crafting Cabernet Sauvignon in South Australia’s Coonawarra region. We’re proud to tell the story of how this variety has dug itself deep into our Coonawarra roots and become a respected style of wine in cellars all over the world. Coonawarra started life as a wine region in 1890, when John Riddoch planted 50 hectares of vines. By 1899, plantings had grown to 140 hectares, with Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Malbec all taking centre stage in the vineyards. But it’s been Cabernet Sauvignon that has sky-rocketed as the dominant variety in Coonawarra. Why? Coonawarra is renowned for its unique geological and climatic features that nurture vines, bearing the highest quality of grapes, especially Cabernet Sauvignon. What makes Coonawarra such a premium region for red wine production, is a natural soil phenomenon called the ‘Terra Rossa’. There’s a lot to like about the history and age-worthiness of the Redman’s historic wines, there’s all that and more to look forward to in the most recent wines.
