This wine exhibits aromas of cassis, blueberry and violets with hints of savoury spice.
The palate is bold, bright and fruit driven, bursting with plum jam, cassis and dark berries. It is full-bodied with ample chewy tannins deliciously reminiscent of dark chocolate. A true representation of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2020 vintage featured a growing season with a warm, dry summer providing the perfect conditions for hallmark flavour intensity. Cool evenings ensured fruit retained natural acidity, producing wines that are expressive and beautifully balanced.
The Hillside Cabernet Sauvignon is a unique expression of the Margaret River wine region – one of the best Cabernet producing areas in the world.
The fruit for this wine was sourced largely from vineyards on the original Deepwoods vineyards in Yallingup. These vines are just coming of age and showing great intensity and verve. The wine underwent 10-14 days of skin contact during fermentation and was then pressed directly to barrel to complete fermentation to dryness and aged for around 12 months. The barrels consisted of 15% new oak and 85% seasoned oak.
Deep crimson with vivid purple hues.
Smoked duck with orange and beetroot sauce.
