Expert Reviews

Rating - 92 - Andrew Caillard MW, Langton's website, August 2011

Deep colour. Fresh sarsaparilla/ chinotto/ cola/ dark berry/ paneforte aromas. Plenty of fruit complexity. Sweet fruit flavours, fine lacy/ chocolaty tannins and underlying cedar oak. Finishes long and sweet/ chinotto flavours. 92 points. 2014-2020.

Rating 95James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion , 2012.

Included in best of variety in Australia. In 26th place out of a list of 61.

Developed colour, a typical cedary bouquet reflecting 36 months in predominantly French oak Barriques, has savoury, minty characters with considerable length and persistence, the core of sweet fruit within that bundle breaking free on the finish and aftertaste. Cellar to 2026.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour ::

Dark plum reds with purple red edges.

Aroma ::

An opulent and complex array of ripened fruit and oak matured aromas. Rich mulberry and plum showing subtle dustiness are laced with sweet vanilla, smoky and roasted mocha oak aromas.

Palate ::

An intricately layered palate structure of ripe fruit and oakflavours seamlessly combined by maturation in barrels. Ripe dark berries,hints of dusty mulberry and spicy plums with subtle vanilla, mocha andchocolate oak flavours are all richly interwoven. Fine grained and softly assertive tannins complement the Cabernets lingering 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.
