The Caledonian 2016

The Caledonian 2016

The Caledonian is named in honour of canny Scotsman, John Riddoch, founder of the Coonawarra wine region. In 1896, Riddoch made his second vintage in the Katnook woolshed. It is available exclusively at Cellar Door and online. This blend captures the synergy of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz with smaller portions of lesser know varieties Tannat and Petit Verdot.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Richly layered dark berry fruit and oak. Black berry, mulberry and spiced plum, enhanced with vanillin oak and fine, lingering tannins.
Vineyard Notes
Coonawarra's 2016 vintage was an early one. An ideal growing season of slightly above average temperatures and dry conditions produced outstanding red fruit that expresses vibrant fruit flavours and strong varietal characters.
Production Notes
Select parcels of wine were matured for approximately four months in American oak barrels (19%), and older French oak (14%).
Food Pairing Notes
Roast beef with red wine jus, slow cooked Moroccan tagine or some aged cheddar.
