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.
Leading into the 2022 vintage saw fairly ideal growing condition that where warm and dry, Early February and January saw a cooling off and significant rain events that slowed down ripening and retained natural acidity. This resulted in added pressure in the vineyards to control potential fruit split and disease. Fortunately our vineyards were unaffected and the fruit coming in was pristine.

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.
