80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot. Ruby red with a light purple edge. The nose shows blackcurrant, blueberries, liquorice and dark chocolate and the tiniest hint of eucalypt. The palate is rich and smooth, with flavours of mulberries and sweet, dark fruits coming forth. The twelve months maturing in French oak has helped to smooth out and integrate the acids, tannins and fruit flavours resulting in a generous and rich wine. Can be cellared for 2-3 years, but made to be enjoyed in the short term. Sharing optional.
It has been our long-held dream to have our own vineyard and winery, where we live and work and produce wines with minimal, if any, additives. The wines are all hand (and foot) made with the aim of best reflecting the Margaret River terroir in the sub-region of Wilyabrup. The vineyard is organic, dry-grown and utilises biodynamic principles. On a gentle slope with maximum sun exposure, each block is treated individually, then made into individual wines with minimal intervention to encourage them to speak more of place.
