Punters Corner Coonawarra Triple Crown 2002

This wine is from Punters Corner in Coonawarra and is a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and shiraz from the 2002 vintage.  It was purchased in South Australia at release, when travel outside of Victoria was a thing. The wine opens to tertiary aromas of cedar, smoke and earth.  The palate is full bodied and earthy in expression with red fruits and that ferrous Coonawarra character expressing unequivocally its origin.  This is a well made wine and fully mature at 18 years old. I would not leave it much longer. Rating: Very Good. Website: https://www.punterscorner.com.au; wine-searcher.com. Reviewed: October 2020.
