2020 Patrick of Coonawarra Méthode Cab Nouveau
The 2020 Patrick of Coonawarra Méthode Cab Nouveau is an early release of Cabernet Sauvignon made to showcase the diversity of the variety. Minimal skin contact ensures softness and balance whilst maintaining varietal expression and a fresh cherry fruit flavour. A wine made to enjoy young; this is a soft, approachable twist on a classic variety.
Drink within the first 18 months, slightly chilled in warmer climates or with lunch in cooler climates. An approachable take on a classic that will make you question the variety and challenge your perceptions.
During a decorated career spanning more than three decades, Patrick celebrated international accolades while working as chief winemaker for several major labels. His focus switched in 1998, to fulfilling a more personal goal, in the establishment of the family owned and operated Patrick of Coonawarra.
Patrick’s eldest son, Luke Tocaciu, has now taken over the family business and continues to produce highly regarded wines from the famed Terra Rossa soils of Coonawarra.
"It’s always a winemaker’s dream to complete the story... To grow, make and sell our own produce gives us an enormous sense of accomplishment."
