Back Vintages


The Menzies Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
  • Vintage quality: 2018 was a very good vintage for Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. A cold winter enabled the vines to rest longer during dormancy. Winter and spring rainfall was approximately twenty percent above average, replenishing soil moisture and aquifers. Spring and summer were warm, with dry weather during ripening. March temperatures were cooled by the Bonney upwelling which slowed ripening to deliver us fruit with fine tannins, natural acidity and strong varietal flavours.

  • Last tasted: February 2020, Heather Fraser, Winemaker
  • Notes: Deep crimson with a plum hue. Aromas of fresh rosemary, mulberry, ozone, violets and exotic spices. Take a sip and you will feel the poise and tension for which great Cabernet is renowned. A wine of great complexity with flavours of blackcurrant, bitter chocolate and mulberries, wrapped in divine tannins and a lovely sweet, dark fruit finish. With decanting in its youth it is enjoyable as an elegant full-bodied red wine.
