TASTING NOTES
This soft and juicy medium-bodied Cabernet displays all the hallmarks of Margaret River elegance with its bright red and blue berry fruits and silky, smooth tannins that lead into a plush mouthfeel finish.

AWARDS
92 Points- Ray Jordan WA Wine: Review

★★★★★

Gained top points from Matthews, who thought it: “A different spin on chenin blanc with new oak vanilla bean notes on the nose. Surprisingly, works quite well on the palate. Glossy green apple, baked pastries and crème fraiche. Nice line and
length, with seamless acidity.” I loved its apple/stone fruit combination, apple-skin texture and length.

Score - 95

★★★★

Appealed to me with its positive, gooseberry and feijoa aromas. The palate’s round, with flavours turning more to stonefruits. It finishes with subtle sweetness and good ength. Honan noted, “A subtle lick of volatile acidity on the inhale. Saline sweetness on the palate, lemon and passionfruit. Moreishness. Great carry, compels another sip.
