This wine is a celebration of an exceptional vintage for the King of grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon and our home in the heart of the pristine Margaret river wine region. The Evans & Tate is a testament to their regions unique character and over 40 years experience crafting award winning wines.
The colour is astonishing, still bright crimson; the bouquet and palate are full of juicy cassis fruit, yet the overall extract – especially the gossamer tannins – is delicate. A truly beautiful medium-bodied cabernet of exceptional purity and length. Trophies include Best Red Wine Margaret River Wine Show ’15, and Best Cabernet Sauvignon Sydney Wine Show ’16.
“Evans & Tate cabernet sauvignon 2012 ($100) Superbly crafted wine based on some exceptional fruit from a very good vintage. Typically elegant and stylish, with subtle oak and fruit integration. The tannins are quite chalky and the oak liberal but not overplayed. Tightly held but that fruit sweetness is clearly evident within.” – 97 Points Ray Jordan
