2014 ‘muse’ Cabernet Sauvignon


Aged for you. A special two barrel release of some of our finest 2014 Wilyabrup Cabernet, 50% new oak, classic dark chocolate, rich core of blackfruits, smoky, creamy palate with a lashing of pencilly, dusty wood. Yes.


Sourced from an old single vineyard estate in the heart of Wilyabrup, picked and de-stemmed before wild ferment in open bins. Tank-pressed to one new and one aged French barriques, and matured for 22 months with one racking. Final barrel selection composed in December 2015 before bottling unfined, unfiltered. Familiar, undoubt-edly Margaret River Cabernet, yet with the light touch and elegant rawness/freshness of lo-fi winemaking.

Blackcurrant leaps from the glass, but the scents go deeper into forest berries, dense satsuma plum and briary, earthy funk, intense dark chocolate, mocha and a dash of dark spices and bay leaf. Cedary blackfruits dominate the palate, but you will find rich, dark chocolate, liquorice, red & blue berries, a heady mix of eastern spice. Firm (yet fine) tannins follow the length of the palate, structural acidity holds it together, and a dusting of graphite oak to round it all out. Medium weight yet densely flavoured.

Drink with rich/rare red meats, hearty stews, tomato-based pasta and pizza.
