2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage: 2018 – a classic Margaret River vintage, characterised by a beautifully warm and dry ripening period, moderated by afternoon sea breezes and cool, clear nights. Fruit was picked in superb condition at optimal ripeness with full flavours and balanced acidity.

Varietals: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Appearance: Rich plum red with black tints.

Aroma: Aromas of cassis, black olive tapenade, tobacco and bay-leaf with complexing notes of coffee bean, cigar box and cedary oak spice.

Palate: Medium to full-bodied, this wine shows an abundance of black fruit sweetness on the mid-palate, with classical cassis and black olive notes to the fore. Savoury notes of tobacco leaf and dried herbs combine with hints of raspberry, dark chocolate and graphite to add depth and complexity. A refreshing acid line provides poise and length, while an array of fine, earthen tannin provides structure and form.

Oak Detail: 18 months maturation in a combination pf new (30%) and seasoned French oak barriques.

Cellaring: Tannins are plentiful - providing structural framework to the wine and ensuring good cellaring potential of 8-12 years, however they are sufficiently matured to allow for immediate enjoyment.

Food Pairing: Roasted leg of lamb with minted peas and potato dauphinoise.

Alcohol Volume: 14.5%
Acidity: pH 3.68 TA 5.75 g/L
Residual Sugar:;1.0 g/L

Awards & Ratings:

94pts: "Houghton clone, up to 3 weeks on skins, 18 months in barrel (30% new). Some cabernets are dark and brooding; others, like this one, are red-fruited, succulent and juicy. The tannins are chalky, tightly knit together and chewy, making this a star on the rise. Lovely wine. Drink by 2032" Erin Larkin, 2022 Halliday Wine Companion.
