- Cellar Drink Now - 6 years (2017-2023)
- ABV 14.5%
- Closure: Stelvin
Excellent depth of colour displaying an impenetrable inky black core with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Beautifully scented nose with intense aromatics of blackcurrant and mulberry merging into some lightly toasted cedary tobacco characters, dried herbs and spice. Medium to full bodied rich blackcurrant and ripe mulberry flavour swamp the palate overlaying lightly toasted cedary tobacco infusions and spicy dried herbs. Generous velvety mouthfeel with very refined perfectly integrated tannins providing the framework. Excellent power and concentration with a very long blackcurrant, mulberry, spicy cedar, tobacco, light scorched earth and dried herb aftertaste. A rich seamlessly integrated Margaret River Cabernet with a trophy cabinet full of awards.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
The grapes come from a small 38yo planting of cabernet sauvignon by the State Government as part of the Research Station's experiments to ascertain the varieties best suited to the region. The Bramley Vineyard (as it was known) has been restored by Mandoon, and the old vines have given this beautifully structured and utterly pure evocation of cabernet sauvignon, blackcurrant fruit to the fore, tannins and oak lined up in magisterial support. Has cruised effortlessly over the past year, barely changed. Drink by 2042.
