Product Description

The Lindeman's Coonawarra St George Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from over 35 year old vines in the celebrated 12 hectare St George Vineyard. This particularly low yielding vineyard is located on deep Terra Rossa soil producing wines that are the very essence of Coonawarra. Intense, but balanced, with a great potential to age and expressive of both variety and vintage.

The 2009 St George Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was matured for 17 months in a mixture of new and seasoned French barriques. The result is a classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon with blackcurrant, licorice and roasted coffee bean complimented by vanillin oak. The palate is full bodied with dark fruit interwoven with dutch chocolate and licorice flavours framed by structural tannins giving a wine of substance.

Winemaker Comments Brett Sharpe

Vineyard Region Coonawarra

Vintage Conditions The wines of 2009 show great promise with intense varietal characters, deep colours, good structure and ripe tannins. Below average spring rainfall ended with mild, cloudy and windy conditions resulting in a prolonged flowering. Summer temperatures were below average providing a long slow ripening period which lead to a later start to harvest.
