Rich, elegant and full-bodied: A representation of Coonawarra

Home Block is an award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, produced from vines surrounding the Tocaciu family home. It is a single vineyard parcel grown on terra rossa soil from vines planted in 1960.

Home Block was the first wine that Pat released for the family business. It shows the true essence of Coonawarra – rich, dark berry fruits and elegant tannins.

98 PTS — Winestate Magazine - Equal Top In Category "Cab + Bordeaux Challenge". Eligible for "Wine of the Year Awards". 

95 PTS — Ray Jordan- The West Australian - "Patrick Single vineyard Home Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 There is a pure essence of Coonawarra in this excellent cabernet sourced off the original 60-year-old vineyard planted near the family home. Masses of plush dark blackcurrant and spicy cedary fruit characters. A tobacco leaf and sage bush character overlays the aromatic fruit. It was quite a warm vintage, so you are getting of wine of some power and volume. Cellar - 12 years."
