Gold Medal – 2020 Catavinum World Wine & Spirits Competition Gold Medal – 2019 Australian Small Winemakers Show Gold Medal – 2020 China Wine & Spirits Awards Best Value Gold Medal – 2020 Women’s Wine & Spirits Awards Gold Medal (94 points / 5 stars) – Wine Showcase Gold Medal – 2019 Gilbert & Gaillard International Challenge Margaret River has a global reputation for producing some of the world's finest Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit for this wine came from a gravelly loam soil vineyard in the Wallcliffe sub-region. Deep-hued with ruby-garnet highlights. Deep nose opening up to elegant oakiness on first pour with black fruit, tar and spice notes after airing. Palate weight is dense yet fine, well-integrated yet still tightly-wound. Huge potential.

96 / 100

Leo Daly

Deep red in the glass, the nose offers blackcurrent and dark plum. The palate is opulent but remains layered, with generous servings of chewy fruit, dark chocolate and spice while the oak barrel fermentation just adds another layer to its complexity. The finish completes the deal with some lingering tannins. Wonderful now but will gather some character with cellaring. For me, I reckon go to it now.

Sam Kim

Classically expressed, this gorgeous cabernet shows cassis, spiced plum, tobacco, cake spice and vanilla characters on the nose. The palate exhibits excellent concentration and persistency, while remaining elegant and focused. It is wonderfully structured by fine/firm tannins, offering plenty of delectable flavours as well as savoury nuances. At its best: now to 2030.

Huon Hooke

Deepish, bright, youthful red/purple colour, with a fresh, bright cassis aroma, mulberries and cranberries too. Fresh, primal & uncomplicated A big wine, full-bodied and laden with firm tannins. It's bright and youthful and will reward cellaring. Good density, structure & persistence. Drink 2019-2035.

9.5 / 10

Max Crus

It's only 13.5 per cent (only!) yet this feels like a big wine, and more importantly it feels like a good wine. It has that certain air of WA poshness about it like, say, Julie Bishop...hmmm maybe not, and it’s much bigger than her.
