Cabernet has a very long history in Langhorne Creek and is one of the original red varietals used to establish the region. This fruit was grown on ancient, heavy alluvial flood plain soil, traditional to Langhorne Creek.
Named in recognition of our ancestors, Coulthard is maternal grandmother's maiden name!
This wine allows us to show the pure varietal expression of Langhorne Creek Cabernet. It displays a classic ripe cassis aroma with supportive savoury notes. A well balanced palate showing ripe dark fruits enhanced by a silky textural finish.
Individual Cabernet parcels were fermented separately in small open fermenters to allow excellent extraction of colour and flavour. Each batch was matured in a combination of new and older French and American oak barriques for 18 months. The best individual parcels were selected to create the Coulthard Cabernet Sauvignon.
This wine will develop with further bottle maturation however the fine tannin structure means the wine can be enjoyed now.
Matches well with a pasta, red meat or cheese.
