Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep opaque red with a bright purple rim.

Aroma

The nose is complex and shows dark fruits, cassis, tapenade and a hint of tobacco spice.

Palate

The palate is rich and powerful with flavours of plums, blackcurrant leaf, olives and smoked meat. Bright acidity balances this wine with a vibrant strawberry flavours and fine-grained tannins lend exquisite texture and mouthfeel to this wonderfully varietal Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cellaring

This wine will benefit from at least ten years of cellaring.

Technical

Vintage

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 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. 

Winemaking

The wine was aged for 18 months in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels. This resulting wine is a selection of the very best five barrels from within this barrel group with 60% new, tight-grain French oak and 40% seasoned oak barrels used. This is a wine of classic regional expression and poise.

Reviews

Halliday wine companion 2020

14 days on skins, then straight to barrel (60% new) for 19 months maturation, then a selection of the best barrels. A very expressive and fragrant bouquet sets the hares running for this intense wine sourced from the self-described jewel in Deep Woods' crown. This is a super-elegant and pure expression of cabernet with a virtually indefinite future.

Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2020

This comes from a single block in the Yallingup area in northern Margaret River. Power and elegance are captured perfectly in this remarkable statement of the 2017 vintage. Has a strong bay leaf and graphite aroma. Sweet, juicy and succulent fruit qualities married with judicious use of new and seasoned oak which turns the screws to tighten things. Classic result of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts. A wine that will cellar for many years. Cellar 20 years.

Huon Hooke, The Real Review 2021

Deep purple/red colour, with a bouquet that is pungent and cassis-y, with peppery-spicy grace notes and a curlicue of gun-smoke. It has terrific intensity in the mouth. The tannins are tight and firm and fine-grained and run the length of the palate.
