Not a curio, a fantastic expression.
About This Wine
The Methode series from Patrick of Coonawarra is all about reimagining what is possible in the region. Lo-fi wine, yet with science and knowledge behind as opposed to a wild roll of the dice.
In Australia there has always been a bond between Eucalyptus and Cabernet, with vineyards often surrounded by these trees.
This wine is about isolating those vines in close proximity to the Red Gum trees and vinifying them on their own. The result; classic Coonawarra Cabernet with the mint levels taken up a few notches. Balanced, unique, and full of interest, so much to like here.
About Patrick of Coonawarra
Second-generation winemaker Luke Tocaciu, has taken his father Patrick's legacy, and run with it...
While it was the realisation of Patricks dream to farm his own vines, and make wines for himself, his surprise passing in 2013 forced son Luke to take over earlier than expected.
While honouring his father's Coonawarra legacy with their core range of wines, Luke has introduced a more contemporary range of wines with the Methode Series.
Respecting the past, while not being afraid to evolve and change with the times, Patrick of Coonawarra represents both the classical and contemporary styles of Australian wine.
