A NOTE FROM THE WINEMAKERS

“With its layers of complexity and plush tannin, this wine is developing into a classic Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon.”

SERVING TEMPERATURE | 16 - 18°

CELLAR POTENTIAL | Up to 10 - 15 years

TASTING NOTES

This is a complex wine with aromas of black berry fruits, chocolate and cedar with briary highlights. On the palate it has layers of interest starting with rich dark berry fruit flavours, deft oak treatment and plush tannins. It is ready to drink and will age beautifully over the long term.

SEASON

A cool spring lead into a warm and dry summer with moderating cool nights. Milder weather and chilly nights in autumn allowed slow ripening and excellent flavour development.

WINEMAKING

This fruit was hand harvested in late March in a selection of our vineyards; the majority was from the Wilyabrup sub-region and there was a parcel from Carbunup. The must was fermented in overhead and open fermenters for up to three weeks. The wine was aged in French oak barriques, 30 per cent new, for 15 months.

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.
