Perfectly approachable in its youth, this wine will comfortably cellar for several years.
Technical DetailsCountry: Australia
Region: Western Australia
Appellation: Margaret River
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Vineyard: 50% of blend was Estate grown on our Boodjudup and Stevens Road vineyards in the Wallcliffe sub-region of Margaret River. The remainder was predominantly sourced from two Margaret River Grower vineyards (45%) in Wilyabrup and Wallcliffe. A small portion (5%) of Cabernet selected from a mature Geographe vineyard complemented the final blend.
Aging/Cooperage: The fruit was crushed and destemmed then fermented in static fermenters at 26°C for 5 – 7 days. A significant portion (30%) was left for a period of extended maceration on skins followed by a gentle pressing adding plushness and a savoury textural element to the wine. The various batches underwent MLF in a combination of tank and barrel before 14 months’ maturation in a selection French oak barriques (30% new).
