About The Wine
Here's the first release of Cabernet Sauvignon from WA wine power-couple Lee and Clemence Haselgrove.
It's Cabernet from the Great Southern. Cooler than Margaret River, Cabernet from this part of the world is typically more restrained than those from Margaret River in the north.
This has an old-world charm about it. Excellent tannin structure, a deep, concentrated pool of fruit at the core.
It's a wine that will continue to evolve for many years to come.
About L’Enclos du Tertre
L’Enclos du Tertre is the passion project of notable WA grape growing and winemaking pair, Clemence and Lee Haselgrove.
They were the powerhouse duo behind the award-winning wines of Forrest Hill for many years. Now they have their own project. These L’Enclos du Tertre wines have been exceptional from the get-go.
At the centre of it all is a dry-grown organic vineyard in Frankland River that was planted in the 1980s. Lee, one of WA's best viticulturalists tends these old vines. Clemence crafts the wines with a deft touch.
This is a producer to keep a close eye on. The wines are made in very small amounts and are disappearing into the cellars of those in the know at light-speed.
