This wine is a selection of our best parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2010 Vintage. Lovingly cellared and drinking superbly, this wine is an absolute treat.
Wilyabrup is a well-known subregion of Margaret River and consistently produces outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon. This region produces wines with lovely ripe, supple fruit tannins.
The growing season leading into the 2010 Vintage was favourable with good rain in the winter months followed by a relatively dry spring allowing for even flowering across the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties. A moderation in temperature during march resulted in a slowing and extension of the ripening period, producing a wine that has strong varietal fruit flavours and great balance.

Hand-picked fruit is crushed and destemmed to Static Fermenters. Ferments are maintained at cool temperatures with minimal pump overs, to ensure delicate extraction of flavours and colour. The wine is on skins for up to one month and then pressed off to a mix of French oak barrels - forty percent in new and the remainder into second and third use oak for eighteen months barrel maturation.
It displays attractive ripe blackcurrant fruit with lifted herbal and minty notes supported by underlying cigar box and chocolate characters. The palate has great intensity and length with luscious red berry fruits, black olive and smooth fine tannins.
