Tasting Notes

Colour Deep Red
Nose A bouquet of lifted and expressive nose of red berries, blackcurrants and cocoa, with distinct spice and forest floor florals.
Palate A fruit-driven and vibrant palete with an open and approachable core of berry fruits, plums and cassis, with the typical Cabernet taste profile of leafy notes, bright acidity and fine tannins. Punchy and succulent with a lengthy finish- a perfect each way bet. Drink now but able to improve with up to five years cellaring.
Food Pairing BBQ grilled steaks & burgers.
Cellaring Ready, but will Keep

Mount Benson
Mount Benson is a unique coastal geographical indication situated approximately 300 kilometres from Adelaide and halfway between the historic townships of Kingston SE and Robe in the south-east of South Australia. As part of the greater Limestone Coast wine region, Mount Benson is cousin to other well-known winegrowing regions including Coonawarra, Padthaway, Wrattonbully, Penola, Mount Gambier and Robe.

With the region’s first grapes planted in the 1980s, the local farmers were well attuned to Mount Benson’s unique and rugged climatic conditions. These grapes would later make way for the region’s own style of delicate, cool-climate, maritime-influenced wines which have already begun to make waves within a very competitive Australian wine industry. This is the sense of place wineries in the region aim to convey in each bottle of wine they produce.
Sam Kim
Up front and instantly likable, the bouquet shows black/blueberry, dark plum, vanilla and cocoa characters with hints of spice and floral. It is succulent and powerfully expressed on the palate, and delivers punchy fruit flavours and silky texture, beautifully supported by supple tannins. Silky-smooth and delectable. At its best: now to 2020.
