The 2015 Petaluma 'Evans Vineyard' Coonawarra is a brilliant, rich, deep dark purple colour. An elegant nose filled with rich dark berry fruits, overlaid with spice and cassis. The wine displays Coonawarra characters through and through. Plum and black currants are beautifully complemented by elegant spice and cedar with wonderful soft and abundant natural tannin. The wine is full and rich with Coonawarra elegance and suppleness and ripe, spicy fruit.
