Exceptional Value from Coonawarra
Restless Farm 'The Camel' Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Region: Coonawarra, SA
The Restless Farm series of wines date back to the first release in 2008 which was a Goat Padthaway Shiraz as we were well aware that possible the finest value reds in Australia could be sourced from the Limnestone Coast of South Australia.
The animals that live down on the Farm come and go depending upon the wines which the winemakers discover. All of the animals live happily together and there is nothing unusual in a Camel finding it way to the Restless Farm.
I can report seeing wild camels in Central Australia and because of their size it’s a bit alarming when you stumble over a group as they are not happy you are in their territory.
The winemakers tell me they relate each wine to the Restless animal selected though only they can explain the affinity of this very classy Coonawarra Cabernet with a Camel.
Is the red soil of Coonawarra a reminder of the central Australian desert, or does the size of the Camel mean it’s a grand red; only they can say and finally any interpretation is best left to the drinker.
