96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
Rebus Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine crafted to stay true to it’s heritage as an icon of the Margaret River region.
A bountiful wet winter filling the dams, with a warm spring and summer, allowing lovely balance of natural acidities and physiological ripeness in the fruit. A season which parented fragrant fruit and fine tannins.
The parcels of fruit were fermented and matured separately, and after 12 months were blended before bottling based on a precise tasting profile. 40% new French oak barriques for 12 months. Mainly from the Allier and Center of France.
“Separate parcels fermented and matured in French barriques (40% new) for 12 months, thereafter a barrel selection. Puppet master Bruce Dukes has assembled the components on a string, with blackcurrant fruit, French oak and rippling tannins all dancing to his tune. A cabernet that offers much now, notwithstanding its cellaring capacity.” – 96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
