Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Deep red with a slight purple tint, the bouquet seaweedy/spicy, the palate full bodied and gently firm with a trace of final grip. Cedar and mellowing berry fruits. Full bodied and driving on the finish."

95/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Deep red with a good tint of purple and walnutty, coconutty oak overtones on the nose. The wine is full-bodied and firmly structured with lots of density, tannin grip and stuffing. It has good drive through to a long finish and just needs a litte time—or protein-rich food—to soften it off. There's an excellent core of ripe fruit and classic structure that bodes well for the future." (2016 vintage)

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "This is savoury to the end of days, with salted licorice, black pepper, blackberry compote, poached rhubarb and black tea, too. Despite the moderate alcohol, this drinks like a big wine, with extraordinary intensity. Sporting a new (and improved) label, this is very good, and stylistically very confident." (2016 vintage)

Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion "There's no doubting the quality here, although spending 2 years in French and American barriques, 50% new, m" akes a strong statement. A riper style, with plush tannins – but some grip, too. While it will continue to age well, start enjoying it now, while it has a balance of fruit." (2015 vintage)

Falstaff "Rather brooding aromas of dark cassis fruit give way to still very primary black fruit flavour, carefully wrapped in a fine tannic framework with an attractive dash of oak spice. Very sleek and controlled with plenty more to reveal as it matures." (2015 vintage)

Tom Cannavan "Flooded with creamy fruit on the palate, a sweet and supple blackcurrant with a nicely roughening rasp of plum skin tannin and acidity. Long, the tannins chewy despite the whole picture being medium-bodied, and very pleasing." (2015 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Deepish red/purple colour; aromas of dried meat, pencil-shavings oak and dried cranberry. The palate is quite tart and tangy, the acid overdone somewhat. This tends to thin out the mouth-feel and throw the harmony out of whack. There's some nice cassis in the centre and some oak on the aftertaste. Oak is on the borderline. Serve it with food for best results." (2016 vintage)

Home Block is an award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, produced from vines surrounding the Tocaciu family home. It is a single vineyard parcel grown on terra rossa soil from vines planted in 1960.

Home Block was the first wine that Pat released for the family business. It shows the true essence of Coonawarra – rich, dark berry fruits and elegant tannins.

Patrick of Coonawarra was founded by Patrick Tocaciu; one of Australia's leading wine (and AFL football) figures. Patrick's reputation for producing exceptional wine earned him many international accolades for the major labels he worked as Chief Winemaker, including; Tollana, Penfolds, and Hollick Wines. Patrick's distinguished reputation continued with the establishment of his own Patrick of Coonawarra Estate label. The wines are built on the solid foundation of extensive estate vineyards: 36 hectares in Coonawarra and 42 hectares in Wrattonbully. The Wrattonbully plantings contain shiraz, sauvignon blanc, and some of the riesling. All of the cabernet is grown in Coonawarra. The Estate is now managed by his eonologist son, Luke who continues the tradition of producing wines of varietal and regional excellence.

Coonawarra is the most important wine region within South Australia, credited with producing some of the best red wines in the entire country, and often described as Australia's most famous terroir.
