Description

Margaret River is a highly respected wine region in the southwestern corner of Western Australia. Famous for having a more "European" wine style than its counterparts across the country, Margaret River has made its name through its unusually refined Cabernet Sauvignon (often blended with Merlot), gamey Shiraz, intensely citrusy Chardonnay, and refreshingly grassy "SSB'" blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.

Wherever they come from, Cabernet Sauvignon wines usually demonstrate a handful of common character traits (see below for some caveats to this). The typical features are deep color, high tannin content, moderate acidity and aromas of black currant, tomato leaf, dark spices and cedarwood. The wines tend to range from medium-bodied to full-bodied.

Tasting note: "It's unsurprising, given the comparatively cool vintage and Leeuwin's location in Margaret River's chillier southern end, that there's a cool edge to this wine. The fresh currant and black-cherry fruit is etched in savory herbs, menthol, black olive and dark chocolate, with a briny, ocean-swept vibe. Tannins are fine and herb flecked. They're taut but not iron fisted, thanks to fresh acidity and ever-present fruit. It's a tad austere but still offers the drinkability that's signature to this long-standing estate. Would be a knockout with char-grilled steak. Christina Pickard" - 94/100, Wine Enthusiast
