I am a music fan. I would even go as far as to say that I listen to music more hours in the day than I do watching the nonsense box (television for those who are not familiar with this term). And, let’s face it, it is almost everywhere these days. Lifts, shopping centres, at the start, during and after movies, and the list goes on and, who doesn’t have it on in the car when they are cruising around.
I think, when drinking this elegant, sophisticated and powerful wine, it deserves some accompanying theme music. It would be orchestral, of course, beginning with the string section; violins, violas and cellos begin proceedings as the palate distinguishes the flavours as fruits, herbs and oak present themselves. The quiet rolling of the Timpani drums join in as the flavour density builds to black fruits and berries, dark plums, subtle mint and herbal characters. The rolling of the drums slowly intensifies in unison with the increasing fruit concentration. Other supporting orchestral instruments chime in like the subtle oak and silky tannins that add to the terrific length.
The winemaker, Sam Brand, has performed like a conductor with this wine. He has brought everything together beautifully in this classic Coonawarra Concerto.
