Devitt & Moore Wines honours and celebrates the oldest composite clipper ship, the City of Adelaide. Built in 1864 in the UK, by shipping company, Devitt & Moore, the City of Adelaide undertook 23 return voyages between London and Adelaide. The City of Adelaide ship played a pivotal part of Australian immigration, with over 250,000 Australians being able to trace their ancestry to the voyages undertaken. 

Coonawarra Cabernet with some development under its belt. Two years in new French hogsheads and barriques (34%) with the remainder a mix of older French and Hungarian hogsheads and barriques. Under Diam. From a terrific vintage and great to already have some age under its belt. Inky black, the colour of cherry-cola. Still plenty of oak here and it will take some years to fully integrate, but it is on its way. Chocolate, aniseed, mocha, cloves, tobacco leaves and coffee beans. A supple palate with a seductive texture. This is well balanced, with silky tannins, good intensity and very good length. Fifteen years. Alcohol: 14.5%; Price: $135.00; Rating: 94 Points; Ken Gargett
