Farmer's September Favourite
Oakley Adams Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Region: Coonawarra, SA
This new release is simply fabulous and now I am trapped as it needs a higher than 10/10 value for money rating. I give a lot of our wines high value for money ratings as when compared to what similar dollars spent in a conventional liquor store would buy the ratings are true.
This wine was purchased a few years ago and was then left in oak.
One of the oddities of wood ageing is that each barrel develops in its own way though most differences are small. These barrels, of which three were bottled, are a winemakers selection, as when blended they clicked together, the whole being better than the parts.
I think many of our customers will find the taste most appealing and it marries well with the traditional cooler climate Cabernet flavours you would expect. So please reflect on the oak and the four years of quiet slumber and how this has shifted the wine away from the exuberant aromas and flavours of youth. One case per order - thanks.
