    The 2012 Howard Park 'Miamup' Cabernet Sauvignon is a single region wine from Margaret River.

    Margaret River is arguably Australia’s premier Cabernet Sauvignon grape growing region and Cabernet Sauvignon is without doubt Margaret River’s greatest natural asset.Great Cabernet should be both perfumed and poised and meticulous site selection is critical to achieving these key attributes.

    “From Wilyabrup and the northern reaches of the Margaret River GI.

    Very solid Cabernet. Smells and tastes Cassis, redcurrants, bay leaf, chocolate and cured tobacco segueing into vanilla beans. Open weave until tannic grip grains hold at the end of the mid-palate. Some minty refreshment. Conveys a sense of approachability although you’d want a nice steak to make the most of it right now”.

    “One of the many sub-ranges from one of WA’s finest producers. A cabernet from the Miamup Road property in Margaret River, it displays wonderful varietal character of blackcurrant and a little black olive with those leafy cabernet notes lifting from the nose. Controlled and refined”.

    Technical Notes

    Vineyard: Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are sourced from several select vineyard sites located in the Wilyabrup sub region and north to Wildwood Rd in an endeavour to capture ripe fruit flavours, the distinctive perfume and fine tannins of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon.
     

    Winemaking: The individual vineyard blocks that contribute to the Miamup Cabernet Sauvignon are vinified separately. After fermentation on skins the malolactic is conducted in tank prior to barrel maturation. Maturation occurs in our favourite French oak barriques for 15 months. The length of time in oak is important for the integration of the oak and fruit tannins in the wine. Bottling occurs in May of the second year, post the vintage and release is 6 months after bottling.

    Tasting Notes

    Appearance: Deep ruby red.
    Aroma: Medium intensity, aromas of blackberry, earth & dried herbs finishing with coffee,
    vanilla & toasted oak characters.
    Palate: Soft vanilla & luscious forest fruits give way to a savoury, meaty weight and a cocoa,
    coffee-like finish with lovely tannins coating the palate.
