    Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted grape variety in the world and Coonawarra, a small strip of land in the heart of the Limestone Coast in South Australia, is one of the few regions where free draining soils and maritime ripening conditions achieve the ultimate varietal expression.  Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon has the savoury elegance and structure of a Bordeaux yet the fruit purity, ripeness and concentration of Australia.  The award-winning Coonawarra ‘clarets’ of the 1960s through to the 1990s represent a golden era for the region when legendary medium bodied wines with fine acid and tannin structure aged for 20 years or more.  Coonawarra’s current winemakers are working with the benefit of mature vines, modern, innovative viticultural practices and refined oak use to create today’s modern wine styles.

    Raïdis Estate is a boutique estate in the heart of the Coonawarra.  It was started by Chris and Fran Raïdis more than 40 years ago, and today it is owned and operated by the next generation of the Raidis family, Stevo and Emma.  They live their dream every day making premium, minimal intervention wines using sustainable vineyard practices.

    The Billy is a totally opaque black / dark red colour with a dark red hue. Scented aromatics of ripe blackcurrant and mulberries laced with cedar and tobacco characters prevail, followed by black olives, mint, violets and dried herbs.

    Wine Style Meter

     

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
