Riddoch E.k. Coonawarra Merlot 2016 x12
Veal racks roasted with courgettes, red onion and peas.
French & American oak barrels.
Deep ruby red, purple hues
Rich and complex, dark Satsuma plum and wild blackberry aromas combine with sweet cedary oak and pepper spice to produce a beautifully, balanced and complex bouquet.
The soft, supple palate has generous plum, dark berry and cherry flavours. This is a medium to full bodied wine with a fine, supple texture, finely layered structure and subtle sweet oak flavours that fill out the finish.
Coonawarra holds the pre-eminent position as one of Australia's greatest red wine regions, boasting the most celebrated vineyard soil in Australia, known as terra rossa, a distinctive, albeit thin, band of vivid red soil overlying a bed of soft limestone.Cabernet Sauvignon is classed as the premium red grape variety to be grown in Coonawarra along with Coonawarra Shiraz. These two grape varieties have created the region's reputation for reds."Pinot noir may be sexier, shiraz may be more popular, but when the vintage is kind, good old cabernet sauvignon can produce some of the most brilliant red wines in Australia." Max Allen, The Weekend Australian Magazine, June 13-14, 2009.
