Deep Woods Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

INTRODUCTION

Representing the pinnacle of any given vintage, the 2013 Deep Woods Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from the very low-yielding original vines on the estate in the Yallingup region of Margaret River, along with a single estate managed vineyard also in the Yallingup hills adjacent to the Deep Woods property. Each parcel of fruit was afforded the utmost attention in the winery with winemaking techniques aimed at optimising and enhancing the individual character of each block. Throughout the fermentation each batch was pumped over three times daily to gently extract colour, flavour and tannin from the skins. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine was drained from its skins directly to a combination of new and seasoned French barriques where it was allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation and mature for 18 months.

TASTING NOTE

Deep ruby red with vivid purple hues, on the nose this wine has incredible lift and aromatic intensity abounding in concentrated cassis, blueberry and plum fruit flavours; further nuanced by overtones of bitter coco and ripe bay leaf. The palate provides layers of complex and generous varietal flavours including blackberry, plum and cassis. The intense fruit flavours are well supported by delicately interwoven French oak characters and a savoury complexity. The long flavoursome finish is framed by well rounded tannin ensuring the wine will reward long-term cellaring.
