  • THE BRIEF
  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHO MADE IT?
  • THE BRIEF
  • Ringbolt Winemaker Heather Fraser has seen more of Australia than most, having grown up on army bases around the country. Heather completed a degree at Charles Sturt University in 2003 and worked as an assistant winemaker for the Hill-Smith Family Vineyards. She gradually progressed to the role of Winemaker, with a strong passion for sustainability and organic wines.

    Working extensively in Coonawarra and Wrattonbully vineyards has given Heather an intimate understanding of premium Cabernet Sauvignon and outstanding red winemaking experience and skills.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • The vineyard is planted north-south on a buck-shot gravel ridge a few kilometres inland from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River's maritime climate, coupled with well drained soils, has brought the region great recognition for outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon; the Wilyabrup sub-region being the ultimate expression.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Deep magenta in colour. Intense aromas revealing blueberries mulled with cloves and cinnamon bark along with nuances of sandalwood and leaf litter. The palate opens with fresh red fruits building on a silky platform of black forest cake and plush ripe grape tannins, yielding to a robust, refined spice finish. The wine is outstanding now and with careful cellaring will improve over the next 10 years.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Ringbolt is located on the wild and untamed Ringbolt Bay in the Margaret River wine region. The name of the bay comes from one of the many shipwrecks scattered along the wooly southwest coastline that went down in the 1800s. What makes it so treacherous is that Ringbolt Bay is the point where the Indian and Southern Oceans converge, so the waters tend to get a bit unruly. Winemaker Heather Fraser has a love of Cabernet Sauvignon, and so she jumped at the chance to join the team and build her understanding of the wonderful Margaret River region. Having always taken a meticulous approach to her winemaking, Heather believes in attention to detail at every stage. From harvesting at optimal ripeness and fruit flavour, barrel maturation and to continuing to monitor the wine once in bottle - ensuring they are released only at their most enjoyable.
