World Wine – “A later vintage, which required a little courage to wait until the fruit hit that perfect ripeness. This one has emerged really well. It’s a medium-bodied and stylish cabernet. Has a leafy, floral, red berry and slightly brick-dust character to complement. The palate is so seamlessly woven with fine, chalky tannins and integrated oak working harmoniously. Bright with a high-energy finish.” 95/100 Ray Jordan, The West Australian 3 April 2021

About This Wine

Full of energy and vitality with elegant shape and frame, again black and blue fruits dominate the palate. There is dimension, drive, and penetration to the finish. Specifically, there are olive notes, combined with dried thyme, cedar and quartz-like minerality that weaves through to powdery graphite tannins.

Margaret River Wine

In the southwest of Western Australia, the Margaret River wine region is unique in that it is the most maritime-influenced region in all of Australia. The cool Indian ocean breezes come in through the summer to keep the temperatures around the vines steady resulting in an unusually even accumulation of warmth in the growing season. It is also quite dry as interestingly less than 20% of the annual rainfall occurs as the grapes are growing. The region’s climatic factors have been compared to what Bordeaux would be like in a dry season. While the region’s total production is relatively small (3% of Australia’s total wine production), it is responsible for 20% of our premium wine market.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz as well as Bordeaux blends are all very popular red wine options in the region.

For whites, refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon as well as complex, age worthy Chardonnays are the specialties.
