WINE OF THE WEEK: Brand’s of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

ONE FOR LUNCH: Winemaker Peter Weinberg at Brand’s of Coonawarra confesses that working with the region’s Cabernet is one of his greatest pleasures, so add this to a classic 2003 vintage and you’ve got a classic wine.

This one’s loaded with wonderful ripe and robust red fruit flavours, regional characters of cassis and blackcurrant, typically Cabernet Sauvignon minty notes, and long, fine tannins. If you like Cab Sauv this is a must at $22.99 to go with a generous flame-grilled T-bone or prime rib.
