About

Nocturne is the private label of husband and wife winemaking team Julian and Alana Langworthy.

Julian has received plenty of attention since taking home the 2016 Jimmy Watson Trophy for his work on the Deep Woods Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, but it’s this collaboration with Alana which is the winemaking project closest to his heart.

The pair recently obtained a mature Cabernet vineyard in Yallingup, from which they are striving to create elegant, regional Cabernet Sauvignon of premium quality. The 2015 is the first release from this site.

Mike Bennie awarded the inaugural release 93 points, calling it “quite a classic expression, both of region and sub-region.” This wine should be on the hit list for every devotee of Margaret River Cabernet.

What It Tastes Like

“Generous proportions but maintains a neat medium weight feel. Soft, ripe fruit spreads well across the palate, cassis, blueberry, Provencale herbs, black pepper and some subtle, cedary wood tannin. The perfume is reserved, black currants, bay leaf, faint sea spray and tobacco-scented oak. The tannins build nicely, classily, to a secretive but defining pucker. Though fuller and less structured than some wines from around the region, this does have a certain elegant feel.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
