WINE: 07 SEPTEMBER 2014

Berton 2010 Reserve Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

Coonawarra SA | 14.9 per cent alcohol | $17

You would expect to pay more than this for a good-quality Coonawarra cab.

It shows the hallmark varietal and regional cassis, peppermint and cigar-box characters, and also the lean tannins that make dry reds such as this the perfect foil for an eye fillet topped with a few green peppercorns.
