    Winemaker's Notes:

    On the southern boundary of Coonawarra is the old Penola cricket ground, which first saw a ball bowled in anger and the flashing cover drive's of the local champions in 1950. Sadly, the ground closed in 1996. Soon after Jim Barry purchased the 30 acre property and planted Cabernet Sauvignon in the vineyard.

    The original pavilion and pitch have been retained. The vineyard was actually planted around the cricket pitch. So a little piece of history has been preserved. Today this vineyard provides the majority of fruit for our new wine, The Cover Drive, Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Selected parcels of fruit from our other cool climate Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Clare Valley have been carefully blended to produce a wine that is rich, soft and approachable.

    Brilliant deep red in colour with subtle cigar box aromas, dark berries, sweet mints and vanilla. The palate offers luscious blackberry fruit, fully-rounded with velvety tannins and sweet oak from 18 months in American and French barriques. A wine that can be enjoyed now or will reward those who have thepatience to cellar for 2-3 years.
