A stunning Margaret River offering.
Suggestive of ripeness and opulence, notes of rich plum, blueberry pie, violets, cocoa and freshly dried savoury herbs fill the glass. The palate is luxuriant and seamless, unfurling flavours of concentrated blackcurrant, poached red berries, vanilla, mocha, caramel and anise.
This rich and delightful combination of Cabernet fruit, cradled in fine grained French oak and supported by silky, ultra-supple fruit tannins will drink well for years to come.
92- Eric Larkin, The Wine Companion
“… Fruit from the Leston vineyard in Wilyabrup. Parcels vinified separately in a dizzying combination of specificity. Matured in French oak for 18 months (40% new) prior to bottling. 2017 was a cool vintage in Margaret River and perhaps because of this, this wine lacks the density and substance of warmer years. Lovely, fine-boned and elegant, but a little lean and savoury when viewed through the lens of this vintage.”
