Stonehaven Stepping Stone Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2020


From a single vineyard on terra rosa soil over limestone, we have small batch fermentation before ten months in French oak hogsheads. Inky dark maroon, the nose offers aromas of leather, chocolate, cloves, and cigar boxes. A very fine Cabernet where the palate sees the emergence of mulberries, black fruits, and plums. There is well integrated oak evident and just a flick of mint. The wine is focused and seamless with plenty of grip, though it is appealingly sleek. Lingering finish to enjoy now for the next six to eight years. Good value.
