2014 Ringbolt 21 Barriques Cabernet

Its focused restraint hints at its grand longevity, with coiled potential of shy yet intense blackcurrant fruit, firm, graphite-fine tannins and well-defined acidity.'

DESCRIPTION
  • 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.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    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.

    TASTING NOTES

    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.

  • REVIEWS

    'Yalumba winemaker Peter Gambetta got excited about a particular parcel of Wilyabrup cabernet, and the result is the first reserve wine for Ringbolt. Yes, it really was just 21 barriques. Its focused restraint hints at its grand longevity, with coiled potential of shy yet intense blackcurrant fruit, firm, graphite-fine tannins and well-defined acidity. Classy dark chocolate French oak (half new) provides impeccable support, drawing out the finish very long. Patience.
