‘Leo’ Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019


A classic wine in style and sophistication. Deep purple with red hues, the palate displays true varietal character, with deep blackberry, cassis, mint and a hint of smooth cedar oak on the midpalate.

“It’s gorgeously ripe and enticing on the nose with cassis, dark plum, toasty oak, cigar and warm spice aromas. The palate delivers outstanding weight and depth combined with seamless mouthfeel and chalky tannins, making it impressively bold and sturdy. This is magnificently composed and expressed, offering both richness and poise. At its best: 2024 to 2040.”

“This mighty Cabernet comes from an excellent Coonawarra season. The striking thing about it is the way the powerful motherload of super concentrated blackcurrant fruit is delivered with such finesse and elegance. It’s had nearly 24 months in new French oak, and yet the oak is not excessive in any way. Perfumed chalky mix on the nose with a palate that defines the word elegance. This is a wine that will handle extended cellaring. Cellar 25 years.”

“The Nightfall range might be a recent addition to the ranks of Australian fine wine, but for anyone who enjoys cracking Coonawarra wines, especially great Cabernet, they need to take these very seriously indeed. The packaging will attract many. The pricing may cause pause, but when these wines are tasted, they are going to win a lot of fans. Dark magenta. This is all chocolate, cassis, fleshy, with smoked meat notes, dry herbs and bay leaves. There is oak but it is so surreptitious that you have to search for it. The balance here is immaculate. This is intense on the palate, but it is a wine which dances. The tannins are so silky that they are effectively invisible, and yet they coat the palate. This is focused, seamless and exhibiting very good length. Fresh and balanced, this is a cracking Coonawarra Cabernet. The Draco might sit as the flagship but for drinking over the next few years, this is the pick. It will go ten to fifteen years and then some.”

The Real Review, Stuart Knox
“Deep ruby core with purple tints at the rim. Blackberry, tobacco leaf and dry red-earth aromatics. Fleshy black fruits on entry, the fruit power remains but it swiftly rolls into a more savoury, elemental wine with iodine, black stone, cedar and tobacco flavours filling the palate. Finely-grained, powerful tannins work well to shape and focus the wine into a long finish.”
