William W Vineyards 'The Fruit Colony' Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Region: Coonawarra, SA
The Fruit Colony is the 'Eighth of Ten' of our 10th Anniversary Celebration new releases. And what a wine it is. We discovered this wine some time ago and after purchase returned it to oak for another 12 months.
We are wary of oak as we like to display freshness and fruit though another important factor is the cost. Any purchase has to promise a lot to go into Glug barrels.
This year we have expanded our range across the 'Limestone Coast' and have a couple more releases on the way.
The cooler, maritime influence on the vineyards from Robe, Coonawarra and Wrattonbully produce a different expression of Cabernet than those of warmer regions like the Barossa. Coonawarra is justly famous for Cabernet though we find prices are far from buoyant meaning this very fine wine is priced to sell.
