Perfumed and intense; complex aromas of deep, dark berry fruits - cassis, redcurrants, dark
cherries – with a seductive mocha oak overlay. Subtle floral notes emerge with time. The
signature bay leaf element is buried deep in this rich and complex nose, still playing an
Classic Cabernet Sauvignon; powerful and structured. Very compact and dense, with the
powerhouse fruit restrained by fine grained tannins and oak, just as it should be in great
Cabernet. A long, yet not expansive, palate with great fruit length. Finishing with ample,
beautifully structured tannins and a floral retro-nasal lift. This is a serious wine; Margaret
River Cabernet Sauvignon “to a T”, from a great vintage - not something to miss out on
A dry and warm Spring/Summer and an Autumn harvest period of continued warmth
presented near perfect vintage conditions.
The two blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon that make the Suckfizzle Cabernet Sauvignon are
hand-picked and vinified separately.
A portion of each block remains on skins for an extended maceration period with the
remaining portions pressed to tank. The malolactic fermentation occurs in tank and on skins.
Maturation occurs in a selection of French tonnellerie’s barriques for 28 months. The length
of time in oak is extended to ensure full integration of the oak and fruit tannins in the wine.
Bottling occurs in July of the second year, post vintage and release is 6 months after bottling.
Intense garnet with red/purple hues.
Barbecued lamb or goat and aged cheddar.
