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.
DECANTER WORLD WINE AWARDS 2019 - SILVER
Lifted plum fruit with some backed earth notes on the nose. Succulent and juicy palate with some dried herb complexity.
This cabernet shows more iodine and slate character on the nose, as well as ink and hints of citrus rind. Fresh, vibrant red-fruit flavors on the palate and a tangy finish. Great value. Drink now. Screw cap.
CHRISTINA PICKARD - WINE ENTHUSIAST
Part of the Yalumba empire, this Margaret River Cab ticks all the boxes for New World big red lovers. While it lacks some of the elegance and restraint of others from this renowned Cabernet region, it offers plenty of plump, plummy black-currant fruit, coffee, and warming cedar and Christmas spices. The palate is equally plush but it's saved by a savory, focused line of tannins. The oak is toasty and apparent but all in all everything is in place. Drink now–2030.
