This is a typical Margaret River Cabernet with layers of dark fruits, chocolate and dried herbs. It is richly-textured and has fine tannin and classic Cabernet drive.
Vintage 2017 presented many challenges for Margaret River. A very cool spring lead to late budburst and flowering so that the growing season began a few weeks later than average. Unseasonal summer rain, mild temperatures and high humidity called for careful canopy management throughout the season to produce fruit of excellent quality. Harvest of Cabernet began quite late, in early April.
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.
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.
