Sarah Linhart

"Nice fruit and oak, with spicy complexity. Bright and vibrant."

Want classic Cooonawarra Cabernet, complete with all the cedar, blackcurrant and pencil shavings and such Then this Di Giorgio Cabernet is right on the button. 

It's hearty and drying, long and savoury. It's a wine that is already providing real heart and power now, and will do so for ten years (or more) in the future.

In other words, it's exactly what Coonawarra Cabernet is all about, and now for very few dollars.

Expert Reviews

Inviting aromas of cassis, ripe cherry, vanilla and cedar lead to a juicy palate that is supple and nicely rounded. It is delightfully fruited and elegant, offering supple mouthfeel and elegant weight, well structured by fine, chalky tannins, finishing long and sturdy. At its best: now to 2023. 92 points - Sam Kim

How's it taste?

From the Di Giorgio family comes a handy Coonawarra Cabernet with no shortage of tannins and flavour. Bright aromas of blueberry and cassis on the nose. The palate is richly layered with ripe black fruit interwoven with spice. Fine tannins and oak characters from 20 months spent in French and American oak adds structure, depth and length on the finish. A wine that will really reward a year or so in the cellar, this has great structure with some classic Coonawarra tannins.

How was it made?

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon from premium vineyards, matured for 20 months in French oak barrels to gain further complexity

Who made it?

The founding father of Di Giorgio Family Wines, Stefano Di Giorgio, arrived in Australia from Italy, on July 9th, 1952. He was drawn to the Limestone Coast in South Australia, and contracted his services to local farmers in the area. From 1956, Stefano began to aquire holdings of his own in the area, and over the next decades, expanded the farming business to include sheep and cattle. In 1989, four hectares of land was set aside for the planting of grapes. This was gradually expanded to encompass the 126 ha of vines that the fmaily tends today, with the last plantings going in, in 1998. Initially the fruit from these vines was sold to other wineries, but the Di Giorgio family wanted to produce their own wine, and in 2002 purchased a winery in the Coonawarra district. Today, the business is still managed by Stefano's four children - Frank, Nanni, Anna and Nicky, with winemaker Peter Douglas heading up the production side of things.
