2015 Jim Barry "Cover Drive" Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia

SKU #1420752 Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Deepish red/purple colour, with a shy, earthy bouquet showing some tomato-bush and undergrowth notes. The palate is medium to full-bodied and well presented, with slightly grabby tannins, but all in all, very good value at the price. (Huon Hooke, The Real Review) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium garnet colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon The Cover Drive has a classic cassis and dried herbs-scented nose with suggestions of pencil shavings, underbrush and cloves. Medium-bodied, youthful and elegantly played on the mouth, it has an approachable frame of chewy tannins and herbal lift on the finish. Inner quote mark (9/2017)

K&L Notes

Cover Drive is a cricket term that is akin to a "Home Run" in US baseball. 20 years ago the family went to Coonawarra, 500 kilometers southeast of Clare Valley and purchased last remaining block on the fabled Terra Rossa, The property was the retired Penola Cricket ground, left the pitch in the middle and planted the vineyard around it. 100% Coonawarra, 90 acres of Cabernet, planted 1998, five different Cab clones, sought out original clones from ancient vineyards in Coonawarra, totally intermixed. Coonawarra is much cooler than Clare and harvests three weeks later most similar to Bordeaux cliamte. In a place where 90% of the fruit is machine harvested, Jim Barry still picks by hand.
