2019 Leaf Series Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage

2019 was yet another exceptional vintage in the Margaret River GI. Good rain in December followed by mild to warm temperatures allowed for steady and slow ripening. Result – high yields and exceptional fruit quality. Yet another near perfect vintage for the reason. The red wines are young but very good indeed. This
could be the vintage remembered for years to come.

Winemaking

This Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of Yallingup and Wilyabrup fruit, from the northern end of the Margaret River appellation. The cooler 2019 vintage required this northern fruit to enhance the dark fruit characters in the wine. The harvested fruit underwent 3 day cold soak before cool fermentation, and regular pump overs. The wine was then matured for 18 months in a blend of new and used French Oak Barriques.

Colour

Deep dark red with brilliant garnet hues.

Aroma

A great example of a classic Margaret River Cabernet, displaying aromas of black cherry and cassis with a deep mocha influence from the oak.

Tasting Notes

A great example of a classic Margaret River Cabernet displaying aromas of dark fruits and cassis, which lead to a powerful fruit palate, with the dark fruits taking pride of place along side the elegance of the oak, offering bay leaf like spice chocolate and coffee characters and a good acidity which will in turn allow this wine to develop into something very special.

Food Matching

This wine is perfect with your favorite cut of prime beef cooked to your liking. Roasted lamb. Any red meat dishes. Also enjoy with hard and mature cheeses.
