Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are sourced from several select vineyard sites located in the Wilyabrup sub region and north to Wildwood Rd in an endeavour to capture ripe fruit flavours, supple tannins and the distinctive perfume of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon.
The individual vineyard blocks that contribute to Miamup Cabernet are vinified separately. After fermentation on skins, malolactic fermentation is conducted in tank prior to barrel maturation. Maturation occurs in our favourite French oak for 18 months. This length of time in oak allows for the thorough integration of oak and fruit tannins. Bottling occurs in September of the wine’s second year and released when ready.
A deep and inviting black cherry colour with floral notes of violets and fruity,doughy aromas of just baked blackberry muffins. The palate is soft, inviting, and full of free range forest fruits, with vanilla, cocoa and loads of supple, fine tannin.
