Fruit for our Flagship 171 is sourced from our number one block of Cabernet Sauvignon, which was planted in 1971 on the famous Terra Rossa soils adjacent to Coonawarra Township. This wine displays pure and intense cassis and mulberry fruits with an elegant yet powerful tannin structure. Lovely to drink now but with careful cellaring this wine will continue to improve over the next 20 years.
Great colour; already so juicy, awash with cassis, it can be enjoyed now, although this has been made with the future in mind. The tannins have been polished, and already sit elegantly in the armchair of fruit and oak; it is the finish that puts this into a class of its own. - 2017 Halliday Wine Company (97 points)
