“2014 really has come out of the docks as an elegant, classic, cabernet vintage in Margaret River. I am very happy here. This is medium bodied and elegant, but it is also powerful and well structured. The tannins are silky, but they’re grippy. This has a desperately satisfying chewiness about it. I love this. The fruit is not overwhelmed by oak, it’s all about the tannins drawing out the finish. It is red-fruited. It’s all about freshness and balance. Sarsaparilla, black cherry, pomegranate, raspberry and cassis. 10 days on skins, pressed in separate batches – no fining – blended back together. 16 months in French oak. The fruit for the estate range is estate owned. In this case, sourced from 3 vineyards in Wilyabrup. A truly lovely wine. The most temptingly drinkable of the reds, now.”
