2018 Reserve 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 blackcurrant and raspberry fruits ease into lifter violets, cedar and all-spice with savoury notes of olive, sage, bay and tobacco leaf.

Palate: Finely structured and elegant. This medium weighted wine displays an innate power whilst retaining delicacy and poise. Fine spun tannins carry ripe, perfumed fruits across the palate, whilst very tight grained French oak provides structure, form and length to ensure a beautifully elegant finish. 

Oak Detail: 18 months maturation in a combination of new (55%) and seasoned French oak barriques.

Cellaring: Tannins are plentiful – providing a structural framework to the wine and ensuring good cellaring potential of 20+ years, however they are sufficiently fine and elegant to allow for immediate enjoyment.

Awards & Reviews

96pnts - 2023 Decanter World Wine Awards "Perfumed and lifted nose displaying scents of dark rose buds, violets, vanilla spice, cedar and masses of minty cassis and smoked plums. Sumptuous palate, creamy."

96pts - 2022 Halliday Wine Companion "Supple, briny cassis rises up to greet you on first sniff. In a word, pretty. Vibrant. Also joyful. The wine takes a very serios turn on the palate. This is finely structured, shaped by chalky tannins that carry ripe, medium weight fruit over the tongue and through to the finish. Caresses more than it asserts, making it a subtly spicey, elegant and willowy Cabernet, capable of years of grace in cellar. Brilliant fruit. Drink by 2046" Erin Larkin

2022 Reserve Chardonnay

Vintage: 2022 –a classical Margaret River vintage with a warm and dry ripening period moderated by afternoon sea-breezes and cool nights.

Varietals: 100% Chardonnay

Appearance: Pale straw with bright green tints.

Aroma: A lovely balance of citrus perfume, ripe stone fruits - yellow peach and nectarine - with complexing notes of lightly toasted cashew, lemon cream, kaffir leaf and curry leaf.

Palate: Balance is the key – lovely weight of stone fruits, grapefruit zest, frangipani and brioche, with succulent acid leading into savoury complexities from full-solids wild ferment in barrel – seaspray, spice, chipped shell and burnt butter. A wine with depth, phenolic weight and length of flavour and refreshment.

Winemaking: Fruit was handpicked and whole-bunch pressed straight to barrel with full solids for natural ferment by indigenous yeast. Partial malolactic fermentation and judicious lees stirring during maturation built palate weight, texture and complexity. Blended via barrel selection, the wine was allowed to rest in tank for 1 month, then heat and cold stabilised with minimal fining and filtered prior to bottling in February 2023.

Oak Detail: 11 months maturation in a combination of 50% new and balance 2nd use tight grained French oak barriques – Francois Freres, Taransaud & Mercurey.

Cellaring: Drinking well now, this wine has the requisite fruit, phenolic weight and winemaking artefact to reward cellaring over the next 10 years.

Alcohol Volume: 13.0%
Acidity: pH 3.29 TA 6.9 g/L
Residual Sugar: 1.0 g/L
