About

Bruce Jukes’ winemaking starts literally from the ground up. The man has been obsessed with growing things for over two decades and it shows in every wine he makes. His roots (pardon the pun) have been put down in Margaret River and the man has immense insight into what the balance of soil, aspect and clone can do to a wine in this part of the world.

One of his great loves is Margaret River Cabernet. He explained to us, Rebus is a picture puzzle that when you look at it, the solution is not immediately apparent, there may be several solutions. That’s why I love Margaret River Cabernet - it’s constantly changing and it keeps me constantly challenged.”

The first vintage of this wine (2012) created buyer pandemonium as the first ever Cabernet under $30 to receive 98 points from James Halliday. It is a distinction, in fact, that it shares only with Wendouree for Cabernets $50 and below. Bruce thinks that the 2014 looks every bit as good as the ‘12 and we believe him.

If you love Margaret River Cabernet, you are going to fall in love with this wine. As Gary Walsh said in his wonderful 94 point review, “This is what Margaret River Cabernet is all about, and at a very fair price too… Super wine. You’re laughing.”

What It Tastes Like

“This is what Margaret River Cabernet is all about, and at a very fair price too. Dark fruit, some raspberry freshness, bay leaf and fragrant dried herb, cocoa and spice. Medium bodied, chocolaty and fresh with mixed berries, clean well integrated acidity, and persistent tannin that has density and impact, but feels smooth and toothsome. Finish is fresh, ripe and long. Super wine. You’re laughing.” - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
