Redman Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
The 2017 Redman Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon is dark red with purple hue. The bouquet is lush with violet, cassis, and dark berry fruit with overtones of oak. The mid-weight palate shows excellent flavour and structure with rich fruit and fine grained tannins. The finish is long and flavoursome.
Due to the quality fruit produced in the 2017 vintage – slightly wetter, but the tannins are quite soft, it meant that the winery did not need to fine the end products, so wine is vegan-friendly.
Following in the family tradition, the third generation and fourth generation of Redmans are now working together to produce the top-quality wines for which the Redman name has become renowned. The Redman Shiraz, Redman Cabernet Sauvignon, Redman Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot and The Redman wines are distributed and marketed nationally.
It is why the Redman vineyard remains a boutique estate – viable but small enough to always demand the personal involvement and touch of a generation of Redmans. It is a winemaking craft that is lovingly and thoughtfully handed down from generation to generation. It demands an absolute feel for the wonders of the Coonawarra terra rossa soil and developing an intuitive understanding of what it means to make truly great traditional reds. It also requires from each generation a commitment to leave the land and vines in a manner that surpasses the quality of the previous generation. The expectations are high, but the rewards feed the spirit of what it means to be a Redman.
The 2017 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon fruit comes from parcels of the 34 hectares of Redman Vineyards, consisting of vines ranging in age from 20 to 100 years old. These vines are still traditionally 'cane and spur’ hand-pruned onto a two-wire vertical trellis system. They are judiciously watered to allow the vines to produce premium quality fruit for which Coonawarra is renowned. Winery Notes.
