Caledonian Cabernet Shiraz 2018

Caledonian Cabernet Shiraz 2018

The Caledonian is named in honour of a proud and canny Scot, John Riddoch, founder of the Coonawarra wine region. In 1896, Riddoch made his second vintage in the Katnook Woolshed. The Caledonian celebrates an Australian tradition and the unique synergy achieved by combining Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, whilst capturing the renowed terroir of Coonawarra.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Rich layers of concentrated fruit and oak. Blackcurrant, mulberry and spiced plum, complemented with subtle oak maturation notes and ripe, silky tannins.
Vineyard Notes
2018 was an ideal vintage in Coonawarra. Good rainfall in the lead up to harvest, followed by a warmer and drier season than usual, produced outstanding red fruit showing intense fruit flavours and strong varietal characters.
Winemaker Notes
Select parcels of wine were matured for approximately 18 months in predominantly French oak barriques (approx. 50% new oak).
Food Pairing Notes
Slow cooked lamb shanks with a red wine sauce, BBQ steak with chimichurri sauce or eggplant parmigiana.
