Bright crimson red.
Ripe aromas of currants, damson plums and toasted spice.
A medium-to-full bodied wine filled with flavours of red berries and plums with underlying spice from the oak. Approachable tannins add length and characteristic regional structure.
Ready to enjoy on release but will find further complexity over the first five years from vintage.
Ebony is a classic Australian blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz produced from both select growers and Deep Woods Estate-grown fruit. 2018 was a vintage of two distinct halves. A mild spring that initially caused some worry for varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz was offset by a beautifully warm, early Autumn. Despite harvest being some three weeks later than a typical Margaret River season, fruit quality was incredible and the resultant wines are elegant, full of flavour and have lower than average alcohol levels.
The two varieties were handled separately throughout the winery with a range of winemaking techniques such as open-top fermentation, pre-soaking and post-fermentation maceration used. The philosophy behind Ebony is simple; fruit richness, flavour and soft approachable tannin.
