Vintage

Ebony is a classic Australian blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz that best reflects its origin – Margaret River. The 2016 vintage was excellent. The wine is produced with early drinking in mind and exhibits fleshy tannins with great fruit intensity.

Winemaking

A blend of estate-grown and premium growers’ fruit was used to produce the 2016 Ebony. A range of winemaking techniques was utilised, including open-top fermentation and pre-soaking.

Ray Jordan's Top 100 Reds - The West Australian - July 2017

...when you can get wines like this for less than $20 you are on a winner. This gives the traditional Rhône blend a little tweak using malbec instead of mourvèdre. Generous and fruity with loads of toasty chocolate influences. A little sprinkle of spices adds a finishing lift.

The West Australian Wine Guide 2018

Consistent value-for-money red made from the classic Aussie mix of Cabernet and Shiraz. It's medium bodied with good fruit intensity and structure. Dusty, lightly applied oak and fine sinewy tannins add support. Can't go wrong with this little number.
