2019 Wyjup Collection Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep Maroon with purple hues.
Complex aromatics of ripe cassis and blueberries all intertwined with rich cedar oak and hints of black olive and dark chocolate. A wine structured and built for aging. Almost endless supply of fruit weight on the mid-palate ably carried along with ripe, layered tannins of extraordinary length.
Pair with Venison Tenderloin and Blueberry Sauce.
Limited and Exclusive. A wine that will cellar for a minimum of 15 years. 744 Bottles Made.
95 Points - "It’s the palate weight and refined powdery tannins that make this such a unique cabernet sauvignon. This is a serious red, grown and crafted for its structure and mouthfeel. Sure, there’s a richly scented, wildy varied, combination of aromatics including bay leaf red berries, blackberry, bramble, cocoa and toasty oak, but the essence of this wine is chesterfield-like comfort on the palate. Neatly structured. Charming and proper." - Paul Edwards, The West Australian
95 Points - "First impressions are silky and fragrant, but this rapidly shuts down and the wine gets all dark and brooding. This is an intense, powerful wine that is built for the long haul. Having said that, at no time does this get harsh or aggressive. With patience, this will be a star. A complete wine." - Barry Weinman, Fine Wine Club
96 Points (4.5 Stars) - Winestate Magazine
92 Points + Top In Category - "Aromas of vanilla, cassis and mint move into a structured core of fine yet firm tannins. Flavours of lead pencil shavings emerge within the darker fruit set. It's a little angular at the moment, it has stuffing but needs time to flesh out. The hallmarks of a very good wine are there, time will tell." - Gabrielle Poy, The Real Review
93 Points - "Dried oregano, bay leaf and sage on the nose, accompanied by a melange of blackberries and damp leaves. In the mouth the wine speaks clearly of its Mount Barker roots. It is earthy, layered with red dirt and gravel, and shaped by close knit tannins. Very smart, the cooler year imbuing the wine with a little detail and nuance in the mid palate." - Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion
