From Blocks 5, 6 and 7, Selectiv'-harvested, 12 months in French barriques, the wine including 14% malbec. Gold medal WA Wine Show '19 and gold (best in region) Halliday Cabernet Challenge '19. Luscious blackcurrant fruit, bay leaf and fine tannins.
96 points, Wine Companion (March 2020)
Blackcurrant, plum, aniseed, cedar, dried rose and gum leaf perfume. It’s black fruited, firm and tannic, but succulent and savoury, with black olive rolled in dried herb, crisp but balanced acidity, and a long cool finish. The tannin is kind of lead pencil-y and dark chocolate on the finish. You have to like the Great Southern style, but it’s very good. And value.
