Country: Australia, Coonawarra
Tasting Note: This Cabernet Sauvignon features brilliant colour, abundant fruit and substantial palate structure expected of the vintage. A wine with excellent cellaring potential.
2009 Coonawarra vintage was noted for the brief period of near record high temperatures in late February. The following cooler mild conditions were ideal for producing ripe Cabernet Sauvignon fruit at near optimal flavours. Odyssey is created from small parcels of premium Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from some of our oldest vineyards and selected for their richness and intense Cabernet Sauvignon flavours.
The variable conditions produced higher than expected maturity levels, concentrated colour and tannins and generous flavours. These attributes in the wines have since grown in stature and gained high praise.
Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Pairing: The intense flavours of Odyssey will perfectly accompany slow-cooked beef ragout and roast duck, served with a rich reduction.
