This is Josephine Perry's most exquisite version of Cabernet Sauvignon, the one that speaks most eloquently of her Wallcliffe vineyard in Margaret River. This is Cabernet handpicked at perfect ripeness, foot-stomped and left to soak on skins for six months in amphora, then basket pressed and settled for a further three months in a large clay pot. This is one of the purest examples of top-end Margaret River Cabernet you are likely to find. No additions bar a dash of SO2 to stabilise the wine in bottle. Mike Bennie hit the nail on the head when he called this a "Succulent wine of high finesse." in his 94 point review. _Extremely limited - max of two bottles per customer_.

What it Tastes Like

"Quite an intense perfume, blue berries, mulberry, currants, black olive, bouquet garni, wet slate. Firm in the palate, lean and long, sinewy almost but backed up with dark berry fruit and pulverised granite-like (yet slender) tannins. Chewy finish. Those tannins. Succulent wine of high finesse." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
