Top Rated Cabernet - Halliday Wine Companion Awards 2022
"Wow. Silky smooth aromas of red berries, grey minerality (granite, graphite, etc) and breaths of oceans air whispered about. The palate is exactly as the nose promises, elegant and refined. Length of flavour is where this really kicks into gear, extending seamlessly across the palate, lingering and swirling in its profile. Beautiful, classical cabernet from a cool vintage. What a pleasure this is." 97pts - Erin Larkin - Wine Companion
"Brilliantly deep, brooding red/purple colour. The bouquet is fresh and vibrant, with loads of cassis, violet and blackberry varietal fruit, expertly infused with cedary oak notes. The wine is very intense and powerful, full-bodied and well structured, the cassis flavours rocketing through on the very extended finish and aftertaste. A majestic cabernet." 97pts - Huon Hooke - The Real Review
“95 Points. 2% of Malbec is included in this cracking Margaret River Cabernet. 22 months in total in a mix of barrels and barriques. There has never been any doubt over the stunning quality of the Art Series Chardonnay, but it has taken longer for this wine to reach its current stratospheric levels. Indeed, the Leeuwin reds are one of the big improvers in the region over recent decades. Deep purple here. Black fruits dominate with plums and mulberries. Spices, dry herbs and some gravelly notes. A wine that is concentrated and with deceptive grip, but a wine that is still exhibiting elegance. The balance between fine acidity, silky tannins and impressive length is knife-edge. This is a quality Margaret River Cabernet.” 95 points, Ken Gargett, Winepilot
"I thought at first that this wine was just a bit too medium-bodied; it just didn’t seem to quite have the requisite power. But as it breathed the finish keep inching out and extending. It has a cool flowing feel to it, in that alpine herb and mint notes drift through ripe curranty fruit, but it also feels balanced, ripe and even-handed. That said, everything about this wine is focussed on the finish, and on excelling there. By the time I’d spent an hour or two with it the word impeccable has passed my lips. It grows on you as it grows in the glass." 94pts - Campbell Mattinson - WineFront
