Nugan Estate
Coonawarra, Alcira Vineyard
Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the classic Coonawarra region of South Australia.

Deep purple with vibrant hues. Enticing dark fruit aromas of blackcurrant and mulberry mixed with a hint of mint and eucalypt entwine gracefully with earthy tones and mixed spice. Intense flavours of dark berries, vibrant cassis fruit and velvety tannins beautifully melded with subtle oak accompaniment.



2016 James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 5 STAR WINERY 
2018 James Halliday Australian Wine Companion  93 POINTS

“Excellent crimson-purple colour, has abundant cassis first up, savourycabernet tannins clicking in on the back-palate and finish. The overall balance is good, as is the wine overall.”

2017 Vinous (Tanzer and Raynolds USA) 92 POINTS

“Youthful purple. Sexy, expansive aromas of dark fruit preserves, cured tobacco and woodsmoke, joined by a hint of vanilla as the wine stretches out. Broad and energetic on the palate, offering concentrated yet lively black and blue fruit, spicecake and cola flavors that are sharpened by a jolt of juicy acidity. Smoke and vanilla notes recur on the impressively long, seamless finish, which features supple, even tannins and a sexy floral pastille nuance.”
