DESCRIPTION
  • These wines represent the best parcels of fruit from the vintage; they are identified early on and kept aside. The wines have been matured in French oak for 18 months before being carefully blended prior to bottling.

    A single vineyard in the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River is sourced for this wine. This vineyard consistently produces perfectly balanced parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The site is completely dry grown on gravel loam soils and the quality of the site is reflected in its ability to grow healthy well balanced canopies and ultimately grapes.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    All parcels from this site are harvested during the cool of the night. The fruit is crushed and destemed to Static Fementers. Ferments are maintained at cool temperatures with minimal pump overs, to ensure delicate extraction of flavours and colour. The wine is on skins for up to one month and then pressed off to a mix of French oak barrels - a third in new and the remainder into second and third use oak for 18 months barrel maturation.

    Our reserve cabernet is a selection of the best cabernet sauvignon parcels from the 2015 vintage. A complex bouquet of blueberry, cassis, violet and graphite. The palate is beautifully balanced and finely structured showing luscious red berry fruits and smooth fine tannins. Aged in French oak for 18 months this wine offers excellent cellaring potential.

  • REVIEWS

    'It takes a tide of cassis and bay leaf-like flavour and straps it tight to the future. It's powerfully flavoured and textured and prosecutes every point convincingly on the finish. Nothing need more be said other than: it's absolutely spot on.'
    96 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion 2019

    'Beautifully poised and expressive cabernet. The bouquet is all floral and cigar box with a touch of black olive. The palate is where is ratchets up a notch. Graphite and minerally ironstone threads through to the tightly controlled burst of flavour intensity and drives to a sustained finish. It's loaded with power, yet delivered with an effortlessness that is so appealing.'
