Mulberry, cranberry and fresh plums spring from the glass in an alluring perfume, supported by delicate hints of fresh mint and vanilla oak.
A medium bodied wine that is pretty, supple and salivating. Vibrant flavours of raspberries, cherry fruits and fresh cranberry are complimented by hints of milk chocolate and delicate notes of vanillin from French Oak. Focused and gravelly tannins deliver length and a lingering finish.
The 2019 vintage will be remembered for the cool conditions from budburst which continued over the ripening period. The longer wait for the fruit to ripen resulted in some super fragrant and aromatic berry fruit driven wines with refreshing natural acidity.
All of our Cabernet is harvested at optimum fruit ripeness to enhance the violet perfume and red and blue fruit character of southern Margaret River. The fruit is handled gently, with minimal maceration to ensure whole berries and a pseudo carbonic maceration. After cold soaking, we ferment at warm temperatures of approx. 28 degrees and press based on fruit aroma, extraction and our desired mouthfeel. Maturation in small format French oak barriques for up to 15 months, where the toast and forest is carefully selected based on its suitability for each vineyards fruit aroma and flavour profile.
