A unique expression of the traditional cabernet blend, hand-picked from amongst the oldest vines in the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River. This wine captures the unique synergy of site, varieties and vintage to create a wine with exceptional vibrancy or character for which this area is so highly regarded. Luscious dark fruits with great density and characteristic fine gravely tannins are the hallmarks of this unique sub-region

"An elegant, dusty and faintly sappy blend of charming length and harmony. An intense fragrance of violets, red flowers, forrest berries, fresh cedar/vanilla oak overlies nuances of graphite and dried herbs. It's medium to full-bodied, smooth and seamless, with a pristine expression of dark berries, plums and cherries knit with polished cedary oak and underpinned by pliant, fine-grained tannins, building intensity and structure towards its long, savoury and faintly mineral finish.

A deep flavoured and intense wine with abundant ripe plums, currants and liquorice balanced by touches of tobacco and chocolate. The tight gravelly tannins provide length and shape to the palate carrying the fruit flavours to provide a long and elegant finish.
