    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Elegance reigns supreme with this Margaret River red. It's medium-bodied with a stylish union of red berry fruit, floral violet aromas and dense, rich tannins. This is a cabernet with great weight, rich fruit concentration and absolute finesse. If you're keen to cellar it, try 4-5 years.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • The Snake + Herring brand is a wine safari searching for remarkable grapes from West Australian Vineyards. The Search has begun, and our grape balloon manned by Snake (our winemaker) and Herring (our navigator) represent this.The southwest of WA is a viticultural treasure map as there are vineyard jewels scattered throughout. We seek for blocks within vineyards that really shine; they may seem dull when diluted by the bordering lesser dirt. The search is to find and polish these often overlooked gems and present a treasure chest of different jewels: pristine, crystalline Rieslings; crisp, radiant, multi-faceted Chardonnays; alluring, perfumed Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon; dark, exotic, hedonistic Shiraz; brilliant, regal displays of Cabernets and blends.

    The back label says you can't make cabernet without getting your boots dirty. The wine is indeed very foresty, with black olive, herbs and tannins all providing shape.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Deepish red/purple hue with a sweet, fresh mulberry-scented bouquet with a palate, which is lean and taut, medium to full-bodied and finishes quite firm. Some violets as well. A very tidy wine, streamlined and fine, and concludes with moderate length and a satisfying grip.

    JOE CZERWINSKI - WINE ADVOCATE


    Wonderfully aromatic, the 2017 Dirty Boots Cabernet Sauvignon kicks off with scents of sage, bay leaf, blueberries and cassis. It's medium to full-bodied, with firm but ripe tannins that channel the fruit into a long, dry and slightly savory finish. It should provide happy drinking over the next 5-6 years, and the price represents a solid value.
