Exceptional Value from Coonawarra
Restless Farm 'The Camel' Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Region: Coonawarra, SA
The Restless Farm series of wines were created by the consulting winemaker Nicholas Bourke and we have stocked every release since the first in 2010, which was The Goat Shiraz 2008.
The animals that live down on the Farm come and go depending upon the wines which Nicholas discovers. All of the animals live happily together and there is nothing unusual in a Camel finding it way to the Restless Farm.
I can report seeing wild camels in Central Australia and because of their size it’s a bit alarming when you stumble over a group as they are not happy you are in their territory. Nicholas swears he relates each wine to the Restless animal selected though only he can explain the affinity of this very classy Coonawarra Cabernet with a Camel. Is it the red desert soil, the size of the Camel-who can know and this is best left to the drinker.
