One of the most successful Australian producers throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s, Mildara's Coonawarra vineyard was responsible for producing some extraordinary wines, including the legendary 1963 'Peppermint Patty' and the 1982 and 1989 Jimmy Watson Trophy winners.

Mildara has crafted many superb Coonawarra Cabernets since the release of its original 1963 vintage. Dubbed “Peppermint Pattie” when released, due to its obvious chocolate and mint characters, the wine gained a reputation as being one of the finest produced in the country.To this day, the Mildara Coonawarra wines endeavour to recapture these qualities and produce wine reminiscent of this iconic Cabernet.With one of the longest pedigrees in Coonawarra, Mildara has built an enviable reputation for its quality and long living red wines.
