The International Wine Challenge is accepted as the world’s finest and most meticulously judged wine competition which asses every wine blind and judges each for its faithfulness to the style, region and vintage.
The Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River is predominantly sourced for its consistency in producing rich fruit flavours and a small percentage is sourced from the Wallcliffe sub- region of Margaret River located further south providing subtle and elegant aromatics and fine tannins.
Due to another classic and outstanding growing season this wine displays a fragrant nose of red and black currant fruit with raspberries , violets and hints of cedar and mint. The palate displays persistent berry flavours with fine tannin supporting a long elegant palate.
“Blackcurrant, cherry, plenty of mocha and a seasoning of bay leaf, mint and seaweed – that regional perfume, anyway. Full bodied, smooth and plush, plump fine grained tannin, slight burr of warmth, and a long finish closing with a slick of fine dark chocolate tannin and flavour. Excellent.’ – 93 Points Gary Walsh
“The blend percentages are not specified, but the wine spent 12 months in French oak. The cabernet is certainly dominant, with potent cassis and redcurrant fruit; the tannin structure is gently savoury, exactly as it should be, the palate long and well balanced.” – 94 Points James Halliday
