Expert Reviews

A blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, the cassis fruit wreathed in French oak, and supported by tannins - at the moment oak is omnipresent, but time may cure that. Rating 89 - Drink by 2020 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes

A blend of 75% cabernet sauvignon, 25% cabernet franc

Colour

Deep red with vibrant hues

Aroma

There are fruit notes of black currant and raspberries that are balanced by tobacco leaf characters and quality French oak.

Palate

The entry into the palate is rich, fruity and generous. The tobacco leaf characters and cedary French oak are evident and add complexity. The tannins are mid weighted and well integrated, giving the wine structure and balance. A great example of cool climate Cabernet blend, which has lovely generosity with a balanced and long finish.

Food Matching, Cellaring

Enjoy with red meats or strong cheeses, over the next 5 to 8 years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

3drops began with a family farm and a vision- a vision to produce premium wines and extra virgin olive oil whilst maintaining the integrity of the land for generations to come. Southwest of Mount Barker in the heart of the acclaimed Great Southern wine region of Western Australia, vines and olive trees flourish side by side in the cool, pristine climate.

The 3drops vineyard comprises 15 fertile hectares planted with varieties of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz. Italian, Greek and Spanish varieties of olive trees thrive alongside the vines. The name 3drops was chosen to reflect the attributes of three precious liquids wine, olive oil and water, with both the vineyard and olive grove carefully irrigated from a large wetland on the property.

The melding of time honoured tradition, passion and sensibility with contemporary techniques and the latest technology, enables 3drops to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characters.
