Tasting Notes

In the mid-70’s, the State of WA Agricultural Department planted a test vineyard in Margaret River to test wine grape varieties. The vineyard used to have up to 13 varieties now we just have the 2, including the original Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cabernet and the Merlot used in this blend both come from this property known as “Bramley Research Station Vineyard” and remains to be one of the oldest vineyards in the region. These low yielding vines produce fruit of exceptional concentration, which is hand-picked and processed using traditional winemaking methods. A bouquet of dense blackberry and cassis compliment the secondary notes of sweet spices and fresh cut cedar. We then carefully mature this wine in hand selected French oak for 14 months, producing a wine of intense fruit character, elegance and provenance.

14.0% ALC/VOL, 0g/litre, cellaring potential up to 20 years.
