Schoolhouse Headmaster Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

$55.00
A classic in the making and one of the very best Cabs we have seen this year. It is rich, yet perfectly structured, flawlessly long and finishes with plenty of fine tannins. It is already lovely but will cellar for 20 years. Cassis, mint, chocolate, dried herbs, dark fruit and just a touch of assertively angular greenery. Sorry, this product is not available individually, only in the pack(s) below.

A family business since 2001, CW Wines is backed by 340 hectares of vineyards. The winery is built into the side of a former limestone quarry. In spite of the size, the winemaking touch is light and the fruit is shown to great effect in the finished wines.

If there is one combination to look for when browsing for a good medium-bodied red, Coonawarra, terra rosa and Cabernet Sauvignon is always a winner.

The Coonawarra vineyard region is sparse, running along a thin 2km-wide ridge elevating it above surrounding swamp. World-renowned, this 15km stretch of red soil is so unique, it's worth looking it up on google maps and switching to satellite view to see how it is farmed. See that strip of green north of Penola? That's it, and notice the big spread of nothing around it? The Coonawarra is a very special place. Laying on an old ridge of limestone, the fields have superb drainage, allowing the vines to flourish without the dampness at night that can ruin a good crop. Very similar in climate to the Bordeaux region in
