Bright Deep Colour Red Country
Cameron Country Red Post Coonawarra 5th Bottling Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Region: Coonawarra, SA
This is the final release of the Red Post and the difference is many months in mature oak starting in November 2013.
It shows as the complexion has moved from fruit first to fruit second, and it now sits behind a more complex palate impression of savoury, secondary characters; less of the tantalising flavours of freshness and more of a build-up of the aromas and flavours produced by gentle, slow ageing in oak.
This is what I have been saying: “In my youthful days I thought of Coonawarra as the Bordeaux of the southern hemisphere.
There are similarities but I have a more nuanced view these days. Same grape, similar climate but the heat of our far warmer inland pushes south and makes for a fuller, riper style.
I see all wine regions as unique as it’s impossible to exactly duplicate the same set of conditions which exists on another part of the globe. You do though get bands of similarity and this Coonawarra has the noticeable, firmer grip of cool climate Cabernet”. Limit one case per order.
