Margaret River can make truly beautiful and inspirational wines. Cabernet Sauvignon certainly stands out as one variety most suitable to this region and Evans & Tate is one of Australia’s finest exponents. This wine is dark fruited and powerful, structured by time spent in good quality oak yet finished long and refined.


Colour:
Deep, vibrant purple red with a bright red rim.

Aroma:
The purity and intensity of Cabernet fruits on this wine is remarkable. Bright notes of redcurrant and ripe plum overlaid by subtle leafy and cassis notes with a touch of classy French oak make it unmistakably Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon.

Palate:
Pure red berry fruits on the front palate, a fleshy cassis flavoured mid palate and a finish with lovely freshness and a subtle tannin grip that the best young Cabernet Sauvignon wines from Margaret River are renowned for. Elegant, long and seamless.

Winemaker: Matthew Byrne

Accolades:

Australian Wine Companion James Halliday Top 100 Wines of 2013 - Best Red Wines Under $20
