#NWTW Week 14: The Verdict On Cabernet Sauvignon From Coonawarra

I have to say I’m loving doing New Wine This Week. I think before this week I’d had maybe one or two Cabernet Sauvignons from Coonawarra way, and probably just passed them off as a nice drop that I wouldn’t mind having again once every now and again. It’s when you actually make yourself sit and think about it, what do I like or not like about this wine? There was very little I didn’t like.

Australia’s vineyard areas are pretty much exclusively towards the south coast of the country.  To be fair it’s where near as damn it most of the people are too.  You ever been to the Northern Territory?  Size of UK, France, and Spain put together and the population is something daft like 200,000, of which 150,000 live in Darwin, the main city.  Beautiful place, mind!
