2008 Petaluma Yellow Label Evans Vineyard Coonawarra
Yellow-labelled Petaluma Coonawarra is one of Coonawarra’s most enduring claret style wines. A blend of cabernet merlot with a touch of shiraz and petit verdot, the fruit derives predominantly from the low‑cropping Evans Vineyard (first planted in 1969). After vinification the wine is matured in new French oak barriques for 20 to 22 months. Elegantly structured and beautifully perfumed, it is typified by fresh blackcurrant pastille aromas, fine‑grained tannins and underlying savoury oak.
