97 pts James Hallidays Halliday's Wine Companion 2017 (Campbell Mattinson reviewing)
Richer and riper than the ’11. As a result it’s stunning in a different way. Eucalypt plays a leading role here but so too does beautifully ripened blackcurrant, plum and bay leaf flavours. Cedary-spicy oak has melted straight down into the fruit, and tannin is fine but ever-so-firm. We have something special.



Winemaker Notes

The vineyard is planted north-south on a buck-shot gravel ridge a few kilometres inland from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River’s maritime climate, coupled with well drained soils, has brought the region great recognition for outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon; the Wilyabrup sub-region being the ultimate expression.
This vineyard in the Wilyabrup region was planted in 1970 with superior Cabernet Sauvignon clones, the vines are dry-grown and low cropped. The grapes are hand picked and de-stemmed into open fermenters, maceration was vigorous with regular flooding of the skins, giving controlled extraction of colour and tannin. After pressing, the finished wine is matured for 16 months in French oak barriques, 35 percent of them new
