Petaluma Coonawarra 2003 (Museum Re-release)
Petaluma, founded in 1976, crafts ultra-premium wines by carefully selecting the best sites within a particular region suited to a chosen variety. This is our 'distinguished vineyards' philosophy. This pioneering attitude towards responsive and instinctive viticulture and winemaking is as uncompromising and true today as it was more than 35 years ago.
The well known Coonawarra region produces elegant and long lived Cabernet and Merlot wines. To create this Coonawarra blend that is now an iconic Australian red wine and one of the benchmarks for the region, Petaluma employs hand pruning and hand picking coupled with minimal irrigation and low yields.
Deep red in colour, the nose shows green olives, tobacco leaf and savoury dark berries, the palate is taught in structure with a core of blackberry fruit, combining with high quality oak. The finish has fine, but firm tannins and concludes with balanced acidity and persistent blackberry. Drink: to 2020; Patrick Eckel
