4 CLAYMORE BITTERSWEET SYMPHONY CAB SAUV PENLEY ESTATE CHERTSEY RED BLEND RUSDEN DRIFTSAND GRENACHE SHIRAZ MAJELLA MUSICIAN CABERNET SHIRAZ Cabernet Sauvignon DANDELION ‘PRIDE OF THE FLEURIEU’ CABERNET SAUVIGNON The aroma of carefully nurtured Cabernet Sauvignon grapes springs elegantly to life: red and forest berry aromatics, touches of capsicum, fennel and fresh herbs. Everything is built around this wine’s small yet powerful core of mulberry and blueberry and raspberry fruit. $23.99 per bottle GEOFF MERRILL ʻG&Wʼ CABERNET SAUVIGNON The blend of Coonawarra and McLaren Vale has produced a very wide range of varietal characters. Ranging from tomato leaf and capsicum through to red berries, chocolate and olives. Subtle use of oak has added herbs and spice, and savoury meat notes. $24.99 per bottle BREMERTON ʻCOULTHARDʼ CABERNET SAUVIGNON Grown on the ancient alluvial flood plain soil that is traditional to Langhorne Creek and with individual selection of each fruit parcel, has allowed the pure varietal expression of Langhorne Creek Cabernet to sing - classic ripe cassis aroma with supportive savoury notes. A well balanced palate showing ripe dark fruits enhanced by a silky textural finish. $19.99 per bottle PENLEY ESTATE ʻTHE CHERTSEYʼ A dense, full bodied and complex wine. Earthy concentrated black fruits with fragrance. The core of generous, juicy fruit is supported by mouth coating tannin and quality French oak. Drinking fantastically now and well into the future. $33.99 per bottle ZEMA ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON A benchmark Coonawarra Cabernet. Medium bodied with vibrant flavours of mulberry and blackcurrant, complimented by soft natural tannins and subtle French oak. Complex and well-balanced with a smooth, silky finish. An elegant expression of Coonawarra’s regionality. $25.99 per bottle FRA ER GALLOP ʻPARTERREʼ There is a sense of restraint with gentle savoury notes and a suggestion of earthiness. The fruit profile leans toward black fruit with elements of blackcurrant, dark plums, and a note of cedary oak. It is multi-layered, saturating the palate with flavour, yet has a sense of weightlessness. $36.99 per bottle KALLESKE ʻMERCHANTʼ CABERNET SAUVIGNON The lifted aroma combines classic varietal Cabernet with classic regional Barossa. There is fragrant blackcurrant, tobacco, perfumed violet and a hint of toasted nuts. The palate is full-bodied, rich and generous. The dark fruits are foremost, with classy cedary oak adding complexity. $27.99 per bottle Cabernet Sauvignon is considered the most noble of all the traditional wine grape varieties. It delivers everything a wine lover could possibly ask, equal parts of elegance, structure and body. Typically associated with the cooler climate winemaking regions, over the more recent past we have seen some great wines coming from some of our warmer regions.
