  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    A blend of two parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon grown at Credaro. The first batch from the powerful Summus Vineyard spent 30 days on skins post-fermentation to help soften the tannins. The second batch comes from the Northern Yallingup Hills vineyards which adds stucture and true Cabernet nuances.

    The Margaret River region has produced an exceptional 2016 vintage once again. The overall yields were down but, the quality was excellent. The winter was warmer and wetter than usual, securing water supplies for the entirety of the season. The January and February growing periods were dry and sunny without any extreme heat events. White varieties were picked early with great sugar accumulation, well matched with seed ripeness and flavour development. The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon varieties show intense varietal characteristics and crisp natural acidity on the palate accompanied by a citrus to lemon and lime fruit aromas on the nose. Chardonnay is a stand out, showing great fruit flavours and a nice balanced acidity the chardonnay flavours cover the spectrum from early summer stonefruit, with a fine contour of citrus.

    A fine and elegant palate showing flavours of dark cherry, blackcurrant and blue fruits, with good length of flavour and ripe tannins. Hints of florals and dusty rich oak linger through the finish.

    'The blackcurrant comes cloaked in toasty vanilla and mint. It's sweet and syrupy but it remains fresh, the finish both tannic and cleansing at once. It feels confident at every turn; it drinks well now but it's staring the future in the eye.'
