James Halliday – Tyson Stelzer James Halliday's Wine Companion "92/8% cabernet sauvignon/malbec. Matured 19 months in (20% new and 10% 1yo) French oak barriques and hogsheads. A terrific vintage for the great Menzies vineyard. Textbook, crunchy blackcurrants and blackberries are wrapped in cedary, fine-boned French oak, nuanced with roast coffee bean and high-cocoa dark chocolate. Firm, fine grained tannins unite with vibrant acidity on a finish of fantastic energy and endurance. Now under screw cap, every detail is upheld."

About This Wine

The Cigar Cabernet Sauvignon is named after the unique cigar-shaped strip of rich terra rossa soil that defines the famous Coonawarra wine region. It is a contemporary medium to full bodied wine with rich fruit characters and soft round tannins, making it one of our most popular fine wines.

Coonawarra Wine

The Coonawarra wine region is most known for its Cabernet Sauvignon that is produced on red “terra rossa” soil. This clay soil is one of the most notable in the “New World” of wine covering an area of only 15kmx2km. The terra rossa soil also overlies soft, penetrable limestone and it is this uncommon combination that makes this region so special.

“Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted variety in the world and Coonawarra is one of the few regions where free draining soils and maritime ripening conditions achieve the ultimate varietal expression.” Coonawarra.org

From Coonawarra Cabernet you can expect a medium bodied red with powerful yet polished tannins, luscious dark berry fruit, herb and mint flavours as well as satisfying length.

While half of region’s production is Cabernet, the limestone soils also suit planting of Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon blanc.
