This wine should be drunk now. Medium body, brick red colour with brick red hue. Aroma of stewed fruit, cedar and cigar box followed by a dusty blackcurrant end note. The fruit on the palate is beginning to dry out, with cigar box and cedar flavours dominant. Fine grained tannins, excellent balance – this wine is at its peak. Aftertaste of cedar and cigar box followed by a hint of mint that emerges.
Cellar 1-2 years (2008-2009)
Alc/Vol: 13.7%

First Tasted 23rd October, 2001;
We declared that the 1998 Gartner Cabernet Sauvignon would be the start of a new generation of Coonawarra Classics, and winemaker Peter Douglas has without any doubt delivered the goods yet again. The style of Gartner’s Cabernet owes its inspiration to the style and sophistication of great Bordeaux growths.

“THE 1999 GARTNER CABERNET IS AN EVEN BETTER WINE THAN THE SENSATIONAL 1998. IF NOT FOR THE AMAZING VALUE OF THE WATER WHEEL SHIRAZ, THIS WINE WOULD HAVE CERTAINLY MADE THE FRONT PAGE OF VINTAGE DIRECT.”

Tasting Notes: Opaque crimson colour with deep crimson hue. Magnificent Classic Cabernet nose, with perfumed aroma of violets, blackcurrant, spice and cedar. Totally mouthfilling palate, with wonderful flavour of blackcurrant intermitted with mocha, spice and cedar. Perfect balance with velvet smooth tannins. Outstanding length and finesse with exceptionally long spice, blackcurrant, mocca and cedar aftertaste. This is an outstanding Coonawarra Cabernet and testament to the skills of master winemaker, Peter Douglas. A must for the serious collector and an investment piece. Cellar 5 - 8 years. (2006 - 2009)
RATING: 97/100
