Tasting Notes

The fruit for the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from two vineyards - Frankland River and Mt. Barker. Both vineyards saw perfect vintages for full, rich fruit.

The aroma delivers sweet blackberries and cassis, tinged with liquorice and dark chocolate. Its palate is integrated with savoury notes, oak and fine tannins which has resulted in a finely balanced, yet powerful wine. The addition of Malbec (5%) supports the tannin backbone.

“Cabernet from a single site in the Frankland River region. Medium-bodied but exquisitely well fruited. This is the glory of cabernet fruit on full, open show. Blackcurrant and, as the back label rightly claims, “sweet berry jubes”. ”

Points

95 Points James Halliday , Wine Companion

“A cabernet all about elegance, length and finesse rather than austere power, it comes to meet you halfway, but doesn't settle for second place. It is a celebration of cassis, bay leaf and fine, persistent, faintly earthy, tannins, French oak in the background. ”
