K&L Notes

94 points Wine Front: "From an unofficial sub-region, as yet not trademarked. 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc. It’s a lighter, more perfumed style for sure. Less of the thunder, more of the cirrus with picnics below. Redcurrant, sweet grass, rolling tobacco and mint, plum skin, cocoa and cocoa butter. Medium bodied, fresh and playful with mainly red fruits, aniseed and cocoa, lovely fine acidity and a light rasp of fine grained gravelly tannin. I thought it was a kind of Lexus at first, and then its charm grew on me. It has length. And a sort of suave appeal. Should cellar very well too." Winemaker's Notes: "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."
