Petaluma Coonawarra

The 2001 Petaluma Coonawarra still displays a strong violet colour. It tastes mainly of blackcurrant and is a surprisingly full-bodied wine. The wine has an elegant structure, as you would expect from Brian Croser, and the oak is well integrated.The tannins are strong, but quite fine and the finish quite long.

What I like about this wine is that it has real character. Sometimes the Petaluma wines can be too smooth.
