Cabernet Sauvignon is a star grape variety of Coonawarra, producing some of Australia's excellent 100% varietal red wines, different from Margaret River Cabernets of Western Australia due to the unique "Eucalyptus" notes and concentrated fruit flavours in medium-bodied with a supple palate and well-balanced tannins. It offers blackcurrant, cassis, redcurrant, blackberry and mulberry in young wines, which develop earthy, savoury, spicy and black olive characters with age. Cabernet Sauvignon has two major blend-mates in Australia: the Bordeaux group of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petiti Verdot, Malbec and Shiraz. Merlot, Shiraz, Malbec, Chardonnay and Riesling are the main varietals in the Limestone Coast. John Riddoch had done a huge contribution on Coonawarra's wine industry in 19th century and set up Wynns Coonawarra Estate. Balnaves, Katnook Estate, Lindemans, Majella, Parker Coonawarra Estate, Penfolds, Penley Estate, Petaluma, Yalumba and Zema Estate are the best producers in Coonawarra.
