12x 2003 Burton Premium Wines Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawarra.

2003 93 Points

The Burton 1998 'Reserve' Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon won the Best Red Wine Bottle award at the prestigious 2002 Boutique Winemakers Association Awards. Judging paid particular attention to initial impact, front and back label design, the bottle, the capsule and overall impression.

Two years in both French and American Oak has added great complexity to these grapes to make a truly premium wine. The rich berry fruit palate is well balanced with a long acid tannin finish. Careful cellaring has integrated the fruit and oak and softened the tannin and acid, making all the wines drinking at their peak. Hints of classic Coonawarra characters – mint, eucalyptus, cigar, blackcurrant and tobacco.
