Welcome the Dragon this year with a six pack of our finest at an exceptional price!

Colour: Plum Red.

Bouquet: Bright and lifted with classic Brambly black fruits and currants. Lifted Cedar notes come thru from the finest French oak.

Palate: A rich yet elegant in styled Cabernet showing beautiful sweet black currants and dark plums alongside savoury elements of thyme and some underlying earthy undertones. These flavours are enveloped by silky long fine tannins giving length to a classical Margaret River wine that will age gracefully.

Awards and Reviews: Houghton clone from the Wilyabrup vineyard, 21 days on skins, basket pressed to tank, mlf then pressed to barrel, matured for 18 months in French oak (55% new). An interesting mix of Szechuan peppercorn and raspberry on the nose, the characters testament to both the growing area and the time in oak. In the mouth the wine is silken and pliable, with a swipe of graphite tannins through the cool mineral finish. Very smart. 94 Points Erin Larkin    Published 28 June 2022

“These low yielding vines at Cape Grace are now mature and producing some damn fine fruit that is so important in these cooler vintages. It’s resulted in an elegantly poised cabernet with great structure and flavour intensity. It presents with such a refined effortless manner as the palate builds and extends to a super long finish. Lovely hint of graphite minerality in a wine that is coming together nicely. 

Score 94/100 Cellar 12 years”  Ray Jordan
