2018 Wyjup Collection Cabernet Sauvignon
A sublime vintage, conducive with all Great Southern varietals in expressing its own distinct regionality.
Aromas of blackberries, cassis, bay leaf, tobacco with notes of cedar and floral spicy oak. An intense palate of dark berries and brambled fruits, dense yet fine, compact and intense in youth with tar, graphite, spice and incredible concentration of phenolics (tannin).
A wine of great depth, length and calibre with long term potential to age.

97 Points - "Wonderful expression of the essence of Cabernet. The aroma is a lovely combination of liqueur cherry, black currant and tobacco leaf. The palate seamlessly hugs together with its tanning and oak cloak. Has brilliant brightness and energy. Firm, minerally thread of oyster shell and fresh seaweed. It is so complex" - Ray Jordan, WA Wine Guide 2021 (+ Award for 'Best Cellaring' above $50)
