About The Wine
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 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 2015 vintage of Rebus has been awarded 96 points from James Halliday and looks a prime candidate for cellaring at a very modest price. If you love Margaret River Cabernet, you are going to fall in love with this wine.
