Colour: Deep plum red with purple hues.
Nose: A complex array of fruit, oak and subtle maturation aromas. An attractive combination of ripe black berry and plum fruit interwoven with notes of mocha, vanilla and cedar.
Palate: Intricate layers of concentrated fruit and oak. Rich dark berry, mulberry and plum fruits with hints of mocha and vanilla are complemented by assertive fine grained tannins and balanced oak maturation characters.
Food Matching: The concentrated flavours of Odyssey will match full flavoured dishes such as slow cooked balsamic lamb or homemade pappardelle pasta with a rich duck ragout.
Coonawarra’s 2012 vintage was excellent with above average summer temperatures and below average rainfall for the year. This contributed to earlier ripening and lower yields. Warm and dry conditions leading up to harvest were conducive to one of the earliest vintages on record and Cabernet fruit was picked at optimum condition. Odyssey is created from small parcels of premium Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from our oldest terra rossa vineyards and selected for their richness and intense flavours.Oak maturation: 24 months in small 225L barriques of which 35% were new French oak, 26% one-yearold French oak, 18% two-year-old French oak and 10% two-year-old American oak.
Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Harvest: 25th March - 7th April 2012
Cellaring potential: Cellared correctly, Odyssey will age gracefully for up to 20 years.
