In 1850, 12 miles north east of Penola, Mr John Smith established a sheep station and called the site Comaum. By 1888, with the arrival of more families to the area, Comaum School was opened. Our premium Coonawarra vineyard is situated on the original school house site, and each year a special wine is released in its honour.
Powerful and vibrant blackberry and ripe mulberry, with underlying notes of savoury roasted nuts and black olive. Persistent dark fruit, fine tannins and integrated subdued barrel characters deliver an intricate wine with intensity, elegance and graceful aging potential.
It's gorgeously fruited and seductively complex on the nose showing crème de cassis, spicy oak, vanilla and subtle tobacco notes, leading to a concentrated palate offering terrific fruit power and rich texture. Brilliantly structured by loads of fine tannins, finishing superbly long and sturdy. At its best: Now to 2034; Price: $80.00; Rating: 95 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
