Expert Reviews

Silky texture and sweet cabernet fruit, but submerged in oak after 38 months in new French and American barrels; 12 months less surely would have made a better and less expensive wine. Rating 91 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2007)

Dark plum reds with purple red tinges.

Aroma

A rich & complex expression of ripe fruit & oak matured tones. Dusty mulberry & ripe plum with subtle black olive fruits are enticingly infused with sweet vanilla bean, smoky & roasted mocha oak matured aromas.

Palate

Seams of complexity are a feature of the palate.Rich fruit and cedar oak tones are smoothly combined in this generous & appealing palate structure. Ripe dark berries, hints of dusty mulberry and spicy plums with subtle vanilla, mocha and chocolate from the long oak maturation period. Fine dusty, softly assertive lingering tannins complete the long flavours.

Winery Profile

Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon was first released in 1996 from the 1991 vintage - to celebrate the centenary of the first vintage in Katnook's woolshed. Odyssey defines quintessential Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, produced from the region's distinctive terra rossa soils and crafted with the luxury of great attention to detail.

This multi-award winning wine has a string of international trophies to its name including Best Australian Red and the Frescobaldi Trophy for Best Vintage Red Wine, awarded twice, at the 2003 UK International Wine & Spirit Competition for the 1998 Odyssey.

Odyssey also boasts gold medals for both the 2000 and 2001 vintages in the Decanter World Wine Awards for 2005 and 2006 and classified for the 'Outstanding' category in the prestigious Langton's Classification V 2010.

The concentrated and powerful Odyssey is selected from the most outstanding parcels of intense Cabernet fruit, from specific vineyard rows planted on rich clay terra rossa loams over a thick hard layer of limestone. After vinification in small batch fermenters, maturation takes place over approximately 36 to 40 months in a combination of new French and new American barriques. Some parcels are “double oaked” to increase flavour complexity.

Winemaker, Wayne Stehbens, describes the overall style as “a wine with ripe, rich fruit combined with complex oak and barrel matured flavours.” This highly prized Coonawarra wine is a benchmark style with beautifully intense, pure, blackcurrant aromas, mocha oak complexity, superb volume and dense chocolaty tannins. Odyssey is the essence of Coonawarra style, with remarkable balance and minerality. It has established proven cellaring potential and has a very keen secondary market following.
