Tasting Notes

colour

Deep, purple red with a lovely bright purple rim.

aroma

A pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon blackberry, olive and a fresh leafy lift makes this wine unmistakably from Margaret River.

palate

Long, elegant and medium-bodied with lovely mid-palate texture and fine, succulent "chamois" tannins.

cellaring

Drinking well now or over the next five years. 

Technical

vintage

The 2019 vintage in the Margaret River region can be summarized as late, (mainly due to the cool Spring & Summer), low yielding. Blocks required careful management and those that received early and careful leaf and shoot removal thrived. The low red yields and very good ripening month of April meant we achieved soft, ripe tannins and full long flavours in our red wine styles

winemaking

A special block of Cabernet Sauvignon in the Wilyabrup area was selected to make this wine to depict the essence of the darker, black style of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon from this renowned wine growing region. Handpicked fruit was crushed and destemmed before being cold soaked on skins prior to fermentation. The wine was racked off lees into a combination of French oak barriques (225L) and hogsheads (300L) where they underwent a short malolactic fermentation. After 16 months in barrel, and being racked every 3 months, each barrel was individually tasted and assessed to determine the composition of the final blend. The wine was then carefully blended following these trials and lightly fined with fresh, local free-range egg whites before being filtered once and undergoing extended maturation in bottle prior to release.
