The Deep Woods Estate ‘Grand Selection’ Yallingup and Wilyabrup wines have been produced to highlight the distinct style of two of Margaret River’s best sub- regions.
The 2014 harvest in Margaret River was from our perspective a perfect Cabernet season. Relatively mild daytime temperatures and cool nights prevailed throughout late February and this allowed premium fruit parcels to be picked in perfect condition in early April once peak tannin and flavor ripeness was achieved.
The fruit for the Grand Selection Yallingup Cabernet was sourced from a single vineyard from the original Abbey Vale vineyard planted in 1983. This wine showcases the hallmarks of a true Yallingup Cabernet Sauvignon with incredible power and generosity of flavour yet fine effortlessly silky tannins. The wine was aged for 18 months in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels. This resultant wine is a selection of the very best five barrels from within this barrel group. 60% new, tight-grain French oak and 40% seasoned oak showcase a wine of classic regional expression and poise.
