The Collective Review

What was happening in your life ten years ago? Does it seem like a distant memory? The maturity and wisdom gained with the passage of time, providing grace, elegance and an understanding of the world that seldom comes to one so young.

Well, let’s take a look back to the past, shall we and open up the living, breathing epoch that is a bottle of Patrick’s timeless, 12-year-old Coonawarra Cabernet. This is the ‘Grande Reserve’. The tallest mast in a see of high-fairing flagships. Aged for an extra 18 months in barrel, bottle aged for years, and entombed in a showpiece presentation container, this is the opulent, rich and luscious Coonawarra red at its best.

This is the kind of wine you want to scream about to the world. There’s $1000 Growth Bordeaux that would be envious of this wine’s presence. It’s decked out with berries, leather, tree sap, charcuterie and cocoa powder. There’s the ever present hint of mint chocolate too, and a little lick of tea tree. What a lovely, ageless wine. Exuberant in its youth, it’s now come to the fore, entering the prime of its life. Patrick, take a bow.

Tasting Notes

The best fruit from only the best vintages makes the grade for this iconic wine. Bold, complex notes of dark chocolate and concentrated fruit lead to a wonderfully rich, structured palate with impeccable length. A wine that showcases the true essence of aged Coonawarra Cabernet and will reward any wine lover or true connoisseur.

Winemakers Note

The best fruit from the Home Block vineyard, with only the best vintages making the grade for this iconic wine. A wine that showcases the true essence of aged Coonawarra Cabernet and will reward any wine lover or true connoisseur. VINTAGE NOTE: Good winter rain and early budburst set the season up well. Low crop levels and thick skins meant intense flavour development. A period of cool days and nights slowed ripening in the reds and allowed perfect flavour/sugar balance before harvest.
