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