Redman Cabernet Sauvignon (Magnum) 1976
Redman winery is one of the pioneers of the Coonawarra district. Four generations of Redmans have lived and worked in Coonawarra since 1901. Today Malcolm, Bruce and his son Daniel continue the family tradition of making wines that are a true reflection of the quality of the Coonawarra region.
The Redman grape growing and winemaking traditions can be directly traced to lessons learnt by Bill Redman during his time in Coonawarra. His first and most important rule of winemaking was to keep the winery scrupulously clean. The 34 hectares of the Redman Vineyard consist of vines ranging in age from 20 to 100 years old. These vine are still traditionally 'Cane and spur’ hand pruned onto a two wire vertical trellis system. They are judiciously watered to allow the vines to produce premium quality fruit for which Coonawarra is renowned.
Redman wines are elegant and well balanced in their youth, yet will also develop greater complexity when given a chance to age in the bottle.
