Cabernet parcels grown in the coastal, northern reaches of
Margaret River on ancient, well drained gravel loam soils produce
wines of great varietal purity and character. These wonderful,
often tiny, vineyard sections are individually fermented using
indigenous yeasts, with many experiencing maceration periods of
up to 30 days. Natural fermentation and extended maceration are
coupled with traditional oxidative handling to clearly define the
intricate personality of each vineyard site. Malbec complements
and enhances the Cabernet profile.
Appearance: Dark red with a ruby hue.
Nose: Fragrant and pure Cabernet with blackcurrant and
blueberry fruit, floral violet notes and a subtle twig, Australian
bush undertones. The dark fruit is complimented with light vanilla
and mocha, hinting at the fine oak.
Palate: Classic and youthful with rich blackcurrant fruit weight,
cherry pip freshness and a spectrum of fine to more rustic
gravelly tannins. A berry coulis tang runs through the length of
the palate before a dry, savoury finish of exceptional poise and
Cellaring: Drinks beautifully now,
will reward cellaring over the next
Grape Variety: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon,
13% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot.
