  • Handpicked is a contemporary and dynamic Australian wine company with a unique business model. Unlike most wineries, Hanpicked do not limit ourselves to one region or style. Instead they aim to take wine lovers on a journey through the world's fine wine regions.

    The Collection series are a set of premium wines from hand-picked regions around the world. Each wine has been carefully crafted to reflect a unique sense of place. This wine is a classic Margaret River Cabernet with lovely layers of complexity and depth.  


    Following a bumper vintage in 2012, yields in 2013 were lower, probably around what might be considered normal for the region. A cool spring lead into a warm and dry summer with moderating cool nights. Milder weather and chilly nights in autumn allowed slow ripening and excellent flavour development. This fruit was hand harvested in late March in a selection of our vineyards; the majority was from the Wilyabrup sub-region and there was a parcel from Carbunup. The must was fermented in overhead and open fermenters for up to three weeks. The wine was aged in French oak barriques, 30 per cent new, for 15 months.

    'With its layers of complexity and plush tannin, this wine is developing into a classic Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon.'
    Gary Baldwin, Chief Winemaker


    A classic Margaret River Cabernet with layers of complexity. Fragrant aromas of blackberry and chocolate with briary notes move onto a plush palate of forest fruits and cedary oak. Fine-grained tannins add structure and depth, guiding the wine to a lengthy and satisfying finish.


    'From Wilyabrup. Like all the Handpicked wines, uses quality fruit and experience winemaking to deliver the goods; the fragrant bouquet is followed by a complex medium to full-bodied palate with black foresty fruits married to cedary oak and persistent, fine-grained tannins. An assured future.'
