A 'Raconteur' in French was someone who was telling stories.
Let this wine tell you its story, the story of where it comes from, from the vines in Willyabrup in Margaret River, to the oak barrels at the Vinaceous winery. The story of its origins, its flavours, its delicate aromas, to take you on a delicious journey where you are going to wonder why you haven't tried it before...
- WA - Margaret River
- Western Australia
Hand-picked, open-fermented, 10% whole bunches, basket-pressed into French and American barriques (25% new) to finish fermentation, 14-16 months maturation in those barriques. A medium to full-bodied cabernet in the best traditions of Margaret River, loaded with blackcurrant fruit, ripe tannins and integrated, yet positive, oak. And the price is right. James Halliday, Rating 95, 27th July 2015
Winery Tasting Notes
Lush, rich and deep purple in colour with bright hues.
The aroma leaps from the glass with violets and black berry and mocha notes.
Not unlike a Rorschach Image, people will see different flavours across the palate; some will find ripe fleshy black currants and cassis, others will find crunchy sour cherries; but both complement the overall palate with intensity, weight, structure and texture.
Raconteur can easily be enjoyed on immediate opening or be cellared for up to 10 years.
