About

A beautifully different style of Margaret River Cabernet here from the 2016 Young Gun Winemaker of the Year, Josephine Perry.

There are few, if any, other winemakers in Margaret River that would dare release their Cabernet Sauvignon without any new oak, but that is precisely what Jo chooses for her own. It’s about fruit first and formost, her trusting the vineyard and her instincts on when to pick to ensure that all structure in the wine is derived from the grape rather than an oak tree.

It’s a gloriously feminine style of Cabernet - lifted and precise. Only small amounts made and a cracking 94 points from Mike Bennie. This is a unique wine in the Margaret River landscape.

What It Tastes Like

“Pretty as perfume, shows blue fruits, bay leaf, sea spray, faint Chinese five spice, black olives. Just so. Fragrant. So silky, gently sweet, a bite of tannin, long, just ripe fruit flavours of blueberry and faint black olive. So very long, and that bite becomes a subtle pucker in tannin. Mouth-watering, beautiful, truly beautiful, feel.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
