Degustation notes

Bright crimson red colour, the nose exhibits deep blood plum, mulberry and cassis fruits accompanied by spicy, toasty cedar oak aromas. A classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon with pure and intense fruit flavours and an elegant yet powerful palate structure. The palate displays pure dark brambly cassis seamlessly integrated with toasty cedar oak flavours. That combination of brilliant fruit from very established old vines with the elegance of top quality French oak has produced a balanced wine. It finishes long with fine velvety tannins and lingering fruit notes.

Special notes

Vintage 2013 had a good start with warm weather providing ideal conditions for flowering, resulting in good fruit set. The weather through summer continued warm and dry and these conditions sped up vine growth and berry development. The fruit for this wine was sourced primarily from the No. 1 Cabernet block (also known as the Young Cabernet) planted in 1971 on the Laira vineyard on classic Terra Rossa soil. A small component was taken from the Old Cabernet (1968) block on the Laira vineyard.

    Etwas Wärme für die kalten Herbst- und Wintertage - Gerade wenn es draussen so kalt und ungemütlich ist wie in der letzten Oktoberwoche, kann einem so ein Glas 171 (oder zwei oder drei) das Herz & die Seele richtig erwärmen. Man spürt förmlich die Kraft der australischen Sonne, der Wein ist reichhaltig aber dennoch elegant. Wir hatten dazu Roastbeef und Kartoffel-Gratin - ein Gedicht! Australien kennt der Weinliebhaber ja eher wegen seiner tollen Shiraz aber dieser Cabernet Sauvignon muss sich vor seinen "Cousins" überhaupt nicht verstecken!
