    “Held for 18 months in French barriques. The colour is good, the varietal expression crystal clear, black olive, bay leaf and dried herbs woven through the predominant cassis fruit; the tannins are well balanced and integrated, oak likewise.”

    “There is plenty of good, even great cabernet to be found all over Australia but MR has that extra edge, cool yet strong, and extremely pleasing from first sip to last. 94 points and well worth $28.”

    “Rich juicy red and black fruits, fennel and dried herb perfume, some hazelnut chocolate. Medium bodied with fleshy loose knit tannin that feels good to roll around the mouth, plenty of flavour and just right acidity. Chocolate dipped cherry aftertaste and satisfying length.”

    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 Miamup Cabernet are vinified separately. After fermentation on skins the malolactic is conducted in tank prior to barrel maturation. Maturation occurs in our favourite French oak for 18 months. This length of time in oak allows for the thorough integration of oak and fruit tannins. Bottling occurs in September of the wine’s second year and released when ready.

    Tasting Notes

    A deep and inviting black cherry colour with floral notes of violets and fruity,doughy aromas of just baked blackberry muffins. The palate is soft, inviting, and full of free range forest fruits, vanilla, cocoa and loads of supple, fine tannin.

    Cellaring

    Such a pleasure to drink now but with ample ripe tannin structure to allow for aging up to 5 years.

    Food Ideas

    Savour with lamb chops, char grilled with a bay leaf and smoked paprika rub, served with chickpeas or just drink with well-aged cheddar - Australian of course!
