“This year’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon release is as always, an epic expression of Margaret River Cabernet. It is a wine for the cellar if you can wait, effortless in every way, a cassis flavoured dream.”
Julian Langworthy, Chief Winemaker
Deep crimson with great depth and bright purple hues.
Trademark violets and graphite in abundance, with complex notes of roasted sage and cedar. Dark cassis and liquorice aromas tie this exuberant and intense bouquet together.
Beautifully ripe and superfine tannins are the hallmark of this wine every year. Flavours of black plums, black cherry and cocoa powder are palate staining and matched by an intense, tightly wound and savoury finish. Medium-bodied, the wine shows great balance of natural acidity, fine dense structure and amazing flavour persistence.
This complex, detailed wine will reward careful cellaring of 6-12 years.
The 2019 growing season was not without challenge, but our mature vineyards in the Yallingup Hills, as always, excelled. A mild and very steady vintage allowed for slow, measured flavour and tannin development. The result is medium-bodied wines with lovely perfume and wonderful fine-boned tannin structures. Elegance personified if
Representing the pinnacle of the Deep Woods house-style, this Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from the ultra-low yielding, original vines on the estate, along with fruit from the Abbey Vale vineyard, also in the Yallingup Hills.
The ferments were assessed daily and pump-overs performed as required 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.
