James Halliday – 82/17/1% cabernet sauvignon/malbec/petit verdot, from a single vineyard harvested April 2017. Whole berries, wild-yeast ferment, matured in French oak for 19 months (61% new, 39% 1–4yo). On skins 12–33 days. TA 6.1g/L, pH 3.52. Bottled Feb 2019. This wine is undoubtedly one reason why Margaret River has such a powerful reputation for cabernet: concentration without weight, savoury statuesque tannins and layers upon layers of exotic spice, laid on a bed of ripe fruit. Coursing through the very heart of it is a steady beat of cool-vintage saline acid, pulling it over the coals of the tongue, through to the very long finish. Remarkable.

About This Wine

A lovely, translucent ruby. The tightly intermingled perfume carries Tom's Block characters of savoury tobacco, earthy forest and nori-like ocean breeze. Delicate red berry notes move into savoury tones of cherry pip, mushroom, white clay, brie rind and tamari. A floral fragrance of violets frames this elegant vintage. A restrained and ethereal rendition of Margaret River Cabernet, the body is plush and shapely, with lovely red berry fruit characters and super fine, talc-like tannins of unbelievable length. Graceful and sophisticated with a savoury core, the delicate complexity of perfumes linger on the long drying finish.
