This is a classic and elegant wine from one of Australia’s most established Cabernet regions.
VARIETAL: 70% Cab Sauv, 30% Merlot
REGION: Margaret River, Western Australia The most southerly and coolest vineyards in Margaret River produce intensely aromatic fruit that make elegant and well-structured wines.
VINE TO GLASS: This wine was blended from two parcels of fruit grown by a fourth-generation vigneron. The vines are aged from 10 to 15 years and are trained on a vertical shoot positioning trellis. The soils are gravelly loam. The wine was matured in French barriques and hogsheads for 12 months.
TASTING NOTES: This wine is deeply coloured and brightly scented with intense aromas of cassis, dark cherries and dried herbs underpinned by chocolate and mocha-like oak. Elegant and finely crafted, it is medium to full-bodied with good length of fruit and smooth, finegrained tannin.
