This classic red blend is an easy drinking style, made to be enjoyed now. It has a rich bouquet of dark berries and mocha with a soft generous palate of red currants and plums.

VINEYARDS

The Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River is predominantly sourced for its consistency in producing rich fruit flavours and a small percentage is sourced from the Wallcliffe sub-region of Margaret River, located further south, providing subtle and elegant aromatics and fine tannins.

SEASON

Rains during the month of January helped to freshen up the vineyard and top our dams and water tanks. Fortunately these rains were followed by sunny dry conditions and we found minimal disease pressure in the vineyard, which was mitigated with a little crop thinning. Yields have returned to normal cropping levels.

WINEMAKING

A considerable number of parcels go into making this Cabernet Merlot blend. A number of picks occur starting in the northern areas of Margaret River and working our way south over a couple of months. Each parcel is machine harvested during the cool of the night and transferred to static fermenters for a controlled and cool primary fermentation. After primary ferment each parcel is carefully pressed off. These parcels are sent to a French oak barrels for secondary ferment and maturation.
