About

This flagship red blend from Margaret River winery, Higher Plane, is named The Messenger for their long-time, highly regarded winemaker Mark Messenger.

This represents the best wine he can possibly make from their excellent estate-grown fruit. Using all the colours of the Bordeaux palette with this five-way blend, Mark has carved out a brilliant region version of this classic dry red wine style from a near perfect vintage in 2012.

It has received 95 points from both James Halliday and Gary Walsh. This is a sophisticated and astutely crafted blend that will mature beautifully in the cellar for at least a decade to come.

What It Tastes Like

“Black olives, mineral, cocoa and dark chocolate, spice and black fruits. Medium bodied, dense, savoury but with some floral mouth-perfume, earthy deliciousness kind of a big theme though, tight packed fine tannin, cool length. Dense chocolaty tannin sweeps through on the finish, with a glint of cranberry freshness. Lovely. Sophisticated. Photo finish for 95 points.” - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
