- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
The famous Cabernets of Coonawarra are at their best with a decade or more under their belt. With that in mind, the Toccaciu family of Patrick of Coonawarra have held back the release of their 2006 Home Block Cabernet Sauvignon to allow the wine to show its best. 2006 was an excellent vintage for the region and the wine right now is in the prime of its life. For those wanting the experience of drinking top quality Cabernet with bottle maturity but without the time or space to cellar themselves, this premium museum release will be a rare treat.
What it Tastes Like
"The grapes were grown at the Toccaciu Coonawarra estate, and the wine was matured for 26 months in French and American oak; while I am not a fan of ProCork, this is a very attractive wine, which has cruised through six, rising seven, years, the cassis and cedar flavours supported by very fine but persistent tannins." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

The home of many established and cellar-worthy names, Coonawarra now has some fresh blood making a name for themselves. In a place where Cabernet reigns supreme and with some of the oldest wine growing soils in the country, this region is primed for a renaissence.
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the truly Nobel grapes. An inherently structural variety, Cabernet when handled gently can produce majestic wines of grace and beauty that mature gloriously with time in the bottle. Australian Cabernet runs the full gamut of style: from lighter, more finely boned versions from regions such as the Yarra Valley, through the exquisitely complex and firm wines of Margaret River to the intensely powerful wines from the Coonawarra, there is much to explore in the world of Australian Cabernet Sauvignon.
