Expert Reviews

Last year we advised that you should buy the best piece of lamb you can afford, roast it up and serve it with this little beauty – though of course we were talking of the 2007. Same advice applies here, though. It tastes chocolately, gravelly, curranty and pure. It’s got class and grunt, is beautifully balanced and the flavours persist long after you’ve swallowed. Quality wine – fit for a fine Saturday night.Rating 93 & 4 drops DRINK: 2010 - 2015 Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh, The Big Red Wine Book 2010/2011 (1/JUN/2010)

Lively red and dark berry flavors...with cracked pepper and tobacco nuances contributing complexity.Rating 88 - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (USA)

With the fierce leap of a pouncing tiger, Ringbolt's 2008 delivers the aromatic intensity of an incredibly fragrant, well defined wine. Regional and smoky, its beautifully spoken aromas of char-grilled meats, violets and dried tobacco leaf lead the performance, with the backing notes played by varietally correct blackberries and fresh cedar oak. On entry to the palate it's agreeably smooth and rich, but it flows on fractionally ripe and meaty, as its flavours of dark currant fruits and dried leaves are drawn nicely down the palate by rich, bitter dark chocolate tones. The tannin extract isn't particularly physical or commanding, yet it does finish adequately dry in more of a crisp, silky linen-like fashion, making it an ideal Margaret River cabernet for drinking over the shorter term.

Winemaking Notes

Most of the vines for the Ringbolt Cabernet Sauvignon are trained on a vertically shoot positioned trellis. The grapes were crushed and de-stemmed to a combination of rotary and static fermenters. A vigorous fermentation at elevated temperatures was encouraged. The wine completed both primary and malolactic fermentation in tank and was allowed to settle then racked off lees to barrel where it was matured for 13 months.
