Joshua Cooper Dash Farm Cabernet Sauvignon 2021


Three gorgeous cabernets this vintage from young Joshua Cooper and what a delight: all distinct with their own personalities expressing site. He says this sits at 450m above sea level on the southern granitic slopes of Mount Alexander (Leanganook) looking back towards the Macedon Ranges, and a late ripening site. Dark, inky and enticing with lavender and violets, menthol, milk chocolate, new leather and a waft of a just-whittled pencil while the dark fruit is all blackberries and cassis. Medium bodied, precision tannins with some texture and a fine finish. If anyone can make cabernet cool, it’s Josh Cooper. 95 Points – Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2024

Producer Profile

Josh Cooper is the son of Nelly and Allan Cooper of Cobaw Ridge winery in the Macedon Ranges, a producer of incomparable regard. Interestingly, Josh sources his fruit from outside the family farm, but growing up in the Macedon Ranges he has an intimate knowledge of the region, its vineyards and growers. We have not yet come across a finer suite of negociant wines in Australia.

Bright, pure, translucent, textural, delicate and poised, with a long and lingering carry. Layered complexity, flavours and textures interwoven, seamlessly stitched, the balance is perfect, no flavour or texture dominating, an equality of components.

Beautiful flavours are one thing, but what elevates Josh Cooper’s wines into grandness is their texture, shape and tannin. Billowing, eddying – their shape all movement, pirouetting, rippling, and caressing. No wine feels as another, but they all share a gentle palate presence, a pelt of velvet, silk or longer woodier tannins.
