Description

Tasting Notes

An elegant expression of Coonawarra Cabernet. Generous fruit flavours and aromas are the highlights of this wine. The wine is made from fruit grown at Gavin & Julie Hogg's vineyard situated in the heart of the Coonawarra.

Complexity of flavour and depth of palate have been enhanced by two years barrel maturation in new troncais oak. Further maturation in bottle will be well rewarded.

 

*Vintage may vary. Every effort is made to ensure the current vintage is displayed, however variations can occur.

 

About The Winery

In 1992, Gavin and his wife Julie purchased 10 acres of land in the heart of Coonawarra. To coin a well known cricket lovers phrase, “We are just a mere Ricky Ponting cover-drive from the Coonawarra store.” 

With a strong background in viticulture, Gavin set about introducing a carefully researched trellis system known as the Te Kuata Two Tier to Coonawarra. With its close plantings and vertical shoot positioning, this system allowed for increased yields and optimal fruit quality.

To Gavin (Hoggie), the hallmarks for a successful wine brand are, ‘consistency’ ‘approachability’, ‘drinkability’ and ‘great value for money.’ In his quest to pursue these attributes, the Hoggies label was born.
