About The Wine

The Woodlands Margaret Cabernet Merlot Malbec has been a cellar staple of many fans of Margaret River Bordeaux blends for many years, and the 2015 release is a show-stopper.

It's the mid-tier red that satisfies both those who want quality Cabernet for long-term cellaring or just something excellent to open on the weekend. The fruit is exclusively from the Woodlands estate vineyard in Wilyabrup, Margaret River. It saw 18 months in French oak, half of which was new. It's a powerful, dark and brooding wine with plenty under the hood.

This received 97 points from James Halliday who stated it "Deserves its place among the very best Bordeaux blends of Margaret River", and just a must for any lover of serious Margaret River Cabernet.

Halliday Wine Companion

"75% cabernet sauvignon, 16% merlot, 9% malbec. Deserves its place among the very best Bordeaux blends of Margaret River. The colour is perfect, the bouquet no less so with its wafts of red berries and violets, but it is the texture, balance and length of its palate that take t into another league. Its supple, velvety tannins (ex fruit and oak) are the clincher." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

Additional Info

From The Producer

2015 featured generous winter and spring rainfall, leading us to hope for a bountiful harvest. However, high winds at flowering led to very low crops of Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon. But of all the Woodlands Vineyards, the ‘Margaret’ Cabernet Sauvignon hill was hit worst – resulting in the loss of half the production.

There were warm sunny conditions and little rain from November until mid-March, leading to wonderful flavour development of the fruit that survived. Our 2015 ‘Margaret’ contains a minerality and structure that reminds us of 2005.

Blend : 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 9% Malbec
