Why you'll love this wine

Wild Cape is a celebration of the raw beauty of Western Australia’s South West and is inspired by the spectacular coastline and distinct regional characteristics of Margaret River wine.

Through photographer Andrew Semark’s epic and dramatic ocean photography, Wild Cape embodies the essence of the region where dramatic waves crash onto the coast and world-class wines are produced in this remote, pristine part of the world.

The Wild Cape Cabernet Sauvignon image is aptly named ‘Green Glow’. This image was selected to represent a darker, moodier style of wine, while still depicting the power of the coast and the power of Margaret River Cabernet. Senior Winemaker Matt Byrne translates this power onto the palate when he states this wine “floods the senses with flavour, perfume and a silken palate”. 

Tasting Notes

colour

Purple black with a vibrant purple rim. 

aroma

Ripe dark fruits and layered, complex savoury spice with a lovely perfumed lift that only the best Margaret River Cabernet wines are renowned for.

palate

Blackberry, olive and dry earth mingle with a touch of bright leafiness defining an elegant palate. These driving flavours are matched with a lovely dry, fine tannin grip typical of young Cabernet Sauvignon.

cellaring

Best enjoyed within the next three to five years for aromatic freshness. 

Technical

vintage

The 2021 vintage in Margaret River produced very fine, refined wines. It was cool and wet in parts, with the best Cabernet vineyards producing distinctly medium-bodied wines with great poise and silky tannins.

winemaking

Both the Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec fruit were harvested in the early hours of the morning and cold soaked for 5 days on skins before the onset of fermentation.

After another 7 days of fermentation for the Malbec and 12 days for the Cabernet, each batch was pressed off skins into used French oak barrels. The pressings fraction was blended back into the free-run for both varieties. A portion of the Cabernet was racked to new French oak hogsheads, which represents around 15% new oak in the final blend.

The wine was then matured in barrel for 14 months, with each barrel being topped monthly. Following the maturation period, select barrels were carefully blended before being bottled under screw cap.

Reviews

James Suckling 2023

Ripe raspberries, dark cherries, sweet spices and chocolate on offer. Medium-bodied with chalky tannins and vivid acidity. Juicy, fruit-driven and lightly chewy at the end.

The Real Review 2023

Notes of mulch, spice and blackberries on the nose. Inky tones join in on the palate tempering the core of fruit while adding intrigue. The palate flows nicely, it's elegant in its delivery. This is a very enjoyable young cabernet that over-delivers on its price

91 Points 91

Ray Jordan Wine Guide 2024

A fully ripe and juicy cabernet displaying all the blackcurrant varietal character of this variety. There's a little bay leaf and chocolaty back olive combination. The palate has good flesh which is supported by a firm core of chalky tannin and oak. A minerally graphite nuance completes the wine.
