Drink now or cellar for up to 15 years. No need to decant before serving. Named one of Wine & Spirits Top 100 Wineries of the Year in 2021, Woodlands Wines is considered one of the top wineries in Australia’s Margaret River region. When it was founded in 1973 by David and Heather Watson it became one of the very first wineries to be planted in Margaret River, and over the intervening years Woodlands has established a stellar reputation for ageworthy Bordeaux-style Cabernet blends. This magnificent cuvee is made from the first Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines planted by David and Heather. The gravelly loam soils and east-west orientation of the vines are ideal for creating top quality wines, helping to create a long ripening season for the fruit. Once in the winery the grapes are carefully sorted and vinified with the final blend aged in new French oak barrels for 19 months. In the glass you’ll immediately notice the rich deep crimson hue and enticing hints of cassis, dark cherry and mulberry seasoned with hints of woodsmoke and spice from the oak. The first sip reveals firm tannins, a solid full body, and a finely-balanced finish with plenty of luscious berry flavours and savoury herbal notes of bay leaf and fresh mint. This is a great red to cellar for a few more years or to serve now alongside hearty red meat dishes.
