Jim Barry - 'The Cover Drive' Cabernet Sauvignon

On the southern boundary of Coonawarra is the old Penola cricket ground, which retired in 1996. Soon after, Jim Barry purchased the 30-acre property and planted Cabernet Sauvignon.

The hidden geological treausre of porous limestone, under the rich Terra Rossa soil, creates the ideal cellar by storing water for later use. 

Appearance: In the glass this wine is a deep ruby red with a crimson hue.

On the nose: Classic Cabernet notes of berry compote and dark cherry combine with nuances of olive leaf and lifted red florals. 

On the palate: The palate is lively with bright red berries and dark cherry fruit. The wine has an even pull through the palate with fine tannins and a moreish finish.
