WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
A Match Made In Heaven
 
Cabernet Sauvignon 85%, Merlot 15%
A classic blend of two grapes that do especially well in Margaret River: the dark fruit, depth and drive of Cabernet Sauvignon softened by the bright flavours and rounded tannin of Merlot.

TASTING NOTES

This is a full-bodied wine with aromas of blackberries and chocolate and the distinctive bay leaf character of Margaret River Cabernet wines. The palate has typical Cabernet drive and structure with Merlot adding richness and supple tannin.

SEASON

Hot, dry conditions in summer gave over to milder weather and chilly nights in autumn, which allowed gradual ripening and excellent flavour development in Cabernet and Merlot fruit. This wine was grown at four vineyards in the Wilyabrup, Carbunup and Wallcliffe subregions. Harvest was in late March.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was destemmed then vinified in open fermenters with hand plunging and pump overs. The wine was matured for 12 months in French oak.

THE REGION

THE REGION

Margaret River

Margaret River is one of the most reliable wine growing regions in Australia and its monotonously glowing vintage reports can bring tears to the eyes of long-suffering vignerons in regions less favoured by Mother Nature.

Surrounded by ocean on three sides, the sea breeze brings cool air to moderate the long summer days.
