Coppermine Road runs parallel to our very best Cabernet vineyard in McLaren Vale, just metres from the winery, cellar door and restaurant.
The nose is dark and alluring with varietal cassis, edges of tobacco and a beautiful leafiness that flows into more delicate notes of violet. The nose is fiercely varietal with complexity that draws you back for another look.
The palate is focused with a sweet fruit core of blackcurrant and wild berries that are dense and concentrated. The darker edges on the nose deliver on the palate and give the wine a deeper dimension with notes of dark chocolate.
There is a lovely graphite texture and flavour that runs through the palate before the powdery and chalky tannins kick in for a very long finish. The fruit tannins are wonderfully alive and give considerable structure to the wine. There is a staggering intensity to the palate, yet the wine remains in balance with immense structure from the lively fruit tannins. This wine will age well for up to two decades, providing immense joy along the journey.
