Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion “Stylish new labels and a new name Two Blocks, which replaces the estate range. Shame about adopting new heavy bottles. A solid wine with a core of rich, ripe fruit layered with oak. Fruit flavours have taken a back seat as savoury ones come to the fore with hazelnut skin tannins standing firm.”
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 Estate is now managed by his son, Luke who continues the tradition of producing wines of varietal and regional excellence.
Coonawarra is the most important wine region within the Limestone Coast zone of South Australia, credited with producing some of the best red wines in the entire country, and often described as Australia's most famous terroir. It is located in the far south-east of the state, adjoining the border with Victoria south of Wrattonbully.
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most famous red wine grape varieties. From its origins in Bordeaux, Cabernet has successfully spread to almost every winegrowing country in the world. It is now the key grape variety in many first-rate New World wine regions, most notably Napa Valley, Coonawarra and Maipo Valley. Wherever they come from, Cabernet Sauvignon wines always seem to demonstrate a handful of common character traits: deep color, good tannin structure, moderate acidity and aromas of blackcurrant, tomato leaf, dark spices and cedarwood.
