Single Vineyard wines epitomise the ultimate varietal expression of grapes grown on and selected from the most suitable rows of our family owned, mature and proven cool climate Western Australian vineyards. These wines are released only in years when we believe that this has been achieved.
This wine demonstrates aromas of mulberry, plum and chocolate with some secondary cassis and capsicum overtones. Following fermentation and extended maceration, the wine has been matured in new and old French oak barriques, producing an unmistakable Margaret River cabernet character.

Rating 97 - Ray Jordan, West Australian Wine Guide 2014
Full, bright crimson-purple; has been given the full treatment in terms of fermentation and, even more, new French oak. It opens with cassis and plum, then an atypical touch of chocolate, before a flood of oak comes through to coat the back-palate and finish, and finally some bramble/capsicum notes from the cabernet fruit.
