Tasting Notes

colour

Deep crimson with vivid purple hues.

aroma

This wine exhibits aromas of cassis and dried herbs with hints of spice.

palate

The palate displays flavours of summer plums and dark berries with notes of sweet spice and dark chocolate from the use of both new and seasoned French oak. It is medium-bodied with fine, elegant tannin and persistent length. A true representation of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon. 

cellaring

This wine will continue to improve for up to eight years from vintage. 

Technical

vintage

The 2020 vintage featured a growing season with a warm, dry summer providing the perfect conditions for hallmark flavour intensity. Cool evenings ensured fruit retained natural acidity, producing wines that are expressive and beautifully balanced.

winemaking

The Hillside Cabernet Sauvignon is a unique expression of the Margaret River wine region – one of the best Cabernet producing areas in the world.

The fruit for this wine is sourced largely from the younger and grafted vineyards on the original Deepwoods vineyards in Yallingup. These vines are just coming of age and showing great intensity and verve. The wine is simply made 10-14 days of skin contact during fermentation prior to pressing directly to barrel for around 12mnths maturation. 15 % new French oak.
