Nose

Lifted aromas of spicy black cherry - very typical of the region. Extended oak maturation has added a cedary edge to the bouquet which is very enticing.

Palate

This is a wine with cellaring potential. The palate is young right now - tightly structured with potential to open up into an outstanding Cabernet. Rich varietal fruit characters of ripe blackcurrant, cherry and some plums. Well integrated French and American oak provides depth and complexity, offering smooth tannins and cedar wood nuances. The flavour is long and lingering with a delightful fruit and oak tannin backbone.

Background

With all of the ideal ingredients for the growing of premium fruit it is no wonder that Coonawarra is in a class of its own when it comes to Cabernet. Coonawarra wines will always be among Australia's greatest wines, for their richness, intensity and great depth of flavour. This Ridge Cabernet displays the characteristics that the reputation has been built on, it is ideal to cellar, it has full and rich fruit flavour (as a Coonawarra Cabernet should have) with extended oak maturation imparting greater complexity and structure. Optimise the richness of this wine with a meal that is also strong and full in flavour.Ridge Wines, situated at the northern end of Coonawarra, is part of the historic and picturesque property of Limestone Ridge, home to the Kidman family for four generations.The original vineyards were planted amidst towering red gums in 1984 adding another dimension to the Kidman's rural existence. The 10 hectare vineyard consists of plantings of Riesling, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and of course Cabernet. The old stables, shearers quarters and wool shed - all dating from the 1850s - are still used in the various facets of wine production and farming life providing the perfect backdrop for their cellar door operations.
