This reserve bottling helps to illustrate what makes the Margaret River region of Western Australia so special. Bright and expressive currant and black raspberry add color to Cabernet specific notes of bramble and tobacco leaf. Zippy red berries on the palate focus towards an aromatic and tantalizingly spicy finish. A delicate but deft touch, skillfully executed in this wine from the land down under.

"A high quality Margaret River Cabernet, full of lush cassis fruit tempered by some earth and black olive notes, ripe tannins and some French oak also well and truly in play."

Harvest Notes
2012 season really was something special and agreed amongst the Margaret River winemakers that it was an outstanding season. The Semillon, Sauvignon blends and Chardonnay are rated as outstanding. The warmer weather conditions brought forward vintage by 3 weeks for both reds and whites. Disease pressure was minimal because of seasonal consistency with little rainfall recorded between January until the end of March.
 
Winemaking Notes
Ageing Process: 12 months- 40% new French oak, 20% old French oak, 20% old American oak.
Grapes were harvested, de-stemmed and crushed into static fermenters for fermentation on skins typically for 10 days, with temperatures between 24 - 26c. Regular gentle pump overs to extract colour and tannin. Pressed gently through state of the art pneumatic presses directly to oak to finish fermentation and commence maturation.
 
Winemaker's Notes
Fragrant aromas of blackcurrant, fleshy ripe plums and coffee beans. A palate of cassis with a lengthy finish. Well-weighted oak and velvety tannins.
