The Cabernet Trophy  – National Wine Show of Australia 2015

Another stunning statement of classic Margaret River Cabernet. Packed with all those black currant, plums and chocolate black olive characters you expect. Powerful it is but there’s polish and finesse here that stamps it as a wine of the highest class. – Ray Jordan Wine Guide 2015 – 95 points

A generous full bodied wine full of inky forest fruits, layered with blackcurrant pastilles and dark chocolate characters. The combination of the dense fruit characters and supple tannins linger through to a persistent Cabernet finish.

A relatively wet and windy spring affected flowering and fruit set, with the resulting yields slightly lower than normal. The growing season which followed was warm and dry with sometimes hot conditions around Christmas. Abundant Marri blossom kept bird pressure low early on, although vineyard teams were kept on their toes deterring birds late in the season. The warmer weather in the lead up to harvest saw flavour ripening accelerate with fruit retaining natural acidity and wonderful fresh aromatics. The whites picked at a frenetic pace however the weather cooled significantly during March which resulted in a hiatus in harvesting. The cooler conditions allowed time for the reds to achieve physiological maturity, culminating in great flavour and tannin ripeness when warmer weather returned in April. In summary, 2013 was another great Margaret River vintage!

Fruit was crushed/destemmed before predominantly small batch fermentation in a combination of static and open fermenter. Fermentation takes 7-8 days @ 24 – 26o C, during which the cap is managed using a combination of aerative pumping over as well as regular plunging by hand. After fermentation about a third of the components experienced a period of extended maceration, being left on skins for 4 weeks before a very gentle pressing. MLF takes place in a combination of tank and barrel. The wine was matured for 14 months in French oak (40% new barriques) before the blend was assembled.
