Best of the Coonawarra for Christmas
When you're stuck on what to get someone this Christmas, you surely can't go past wine! Depending on the statement you’re trying to make you’ll be spoilt with choice, but if it’s a lasting impression you’re looking to make, go for a multi-award winner such as Patrick of Coonawarra’s 2010 ‘Grand Reserve’ Cabernet Sauvignon.
The best fruit from only the best vintages makes the grade for this iconic wine. Harvested in 2010 and bottled in 2013, this drop is matured for 40 months in 100% new, tightly grained French oak barrels, then aged under cork for 4 years. The result is a rich and opulent wine which is deep ruby in colour with a red brick hue. This wine pairs nicely with red meat such as rare steak off the bone.
On the palate, this wine is bold and features complex notes of dark chocolate and concentrated fruit making it wonderfully structured and providing length. This wine showcases the true essence of aged Coonawarra Cabernet and will reward any wine lover or true connoisseur.
