vintage

Representing the most important red wine made at Deep Woods Estate in any given vintage, the 2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from the very low-yielding original vines on the estate in the Yallingup region of Margaret River, along with fruit from a single grower also in the Yallingup Hills.

The 2016 harvest in Margaret River marked the ninth consecutive year of excellent vintages for the region. February rain, after a dry, warm January reinvigorated vines and canopies alike.

winemaking

Representing the pinnacle of Deep Woods’ house-style, this Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from the ultra-low yielding, original vines on the estate coupled with fruit from another mature vinyeard, also in the Yallingup Hills in Margaret River.

Throughout fermentation each batch was pumped over between four to two times daily depending on the stage of fermnetation to gently extract colour, flavour and tannin. The wine was gently passed directly to a combination of new and seasoned French barriques where it matured in oak for approximately 18 months.
