Critic Scores & reviews

  • Huon Hooke

    97
    "(2017 vintage) Medium-depth ruby with the faintest tints of purple, a colour that is pale relative to most cabernets of its age. The bouquet is mellow and complex, subtle and well-rounded, with great harmony of mossy undergrowth aromas with cedar and tobacco and mellow red and blue fruits. There is a delicious fruit sweetness at the heart of the wine, the tannins fine and supple and perfectly judged to cleanse and dry the finish and add to its prodigious length. Great drinking already and for many years to come. A beautiful wine. (Includes small proportions of petit verdot and cabernet franc)."
  • James Halliday's Wine Companion

    "75.1/12.4/10/2.5% cabernet sauvignon/merlot/petit verdot/cabernet franc. Hand picked and destemmed. Up to 40 days on skins and matured in French oak for 18 months (60% new). For all the work in the winery, the fruit was clearly very gently handled, with judicious tannin extraction. Medium-bodied, supple, and texturally constructed of fine silk. Densely packed with berry flavour, and corseted by exotic spice, this is a supremely elegant wine."

Locations

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

Western Australia

The wine regions of WA sit at the state’s southwest tip. The famed Margaret River region, with its warm maritime climate, lies roughly 200 kilometres south of Perth. Rainfall is high here compared with other Australian wine regions, but it falls mainly during the winter. Cabernet Sauvignon is a popular planting, and winemakers often blend it with Merlot to create Bordeaux-style wines. Margaret River is also distinguished for its Chardonnays, with their high natural acidity and concentrated stone-fruit aromas. Malolactic fermentation and barrel ageing further lend complexity to these special wines. Sauvignon Blanc is also widely planted here and often goes into blends with Semillon. Wine production also occurs in the Great Southern region, which includes the subregions of Frankland River and Mount Barker. Here, they produce floral Rieslings, peppery and elegant Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Other wine regions in this large state include Blackwood Valley, Geographe, Peel, Pemberton, Manjimup, and Swan District.

Margaret River

Margaret River is the name of a river, town and key wine region. It is one of the younger viticultural regions in Australia, quickly gaining popularity for its world-class wine. Located 280km South of Perth in Western Australia, the first plantings were only made in 1967. The region has grown rapidly and is recognised as one of the great wine-producing regions of the world, with over 200 wineries in operation. Made up of predominantly boutique producers, with a number of big player wineries also, the region makes up only 3% of the Australian wine production, but commands over 20% of the premium wine market. The wineries in the region are vibrant, innovative and progressive in their approach to viticulture.

The Mediterranean style climate provides superior maritime growing conditions, with vines not affected by extreme summer and winter temperatures. The region is well known for producing outstanding red wines; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and to a lesser extent Shiraz, Tempranillo and Malbec. Both straight varietals and famous Bordeaux blends can be outstanding.

In the white wines, Chardonnays of great depth and character, and fresh Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends are the main varietals the region is famous for. Lesser quantities of Viognier, Riesling and Muscat are also produced.
