Flinders Bay Humpback Reserve Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon (2014) - 750mL
in a mixed or straight dozen
Margaret River is famous for it's Cabernet and this shows how good it can be without destroying the budget!
The fruit for this wines comes from Witchcliffe, Osmington and Yelverton regions of Margaret River in a very good year.
After the fruit reached optimum ripeness, it was left on the vine for a further week in mild Autumn weather.
This ensured full ripeness without the 'greens' or capsicum flavours evident in some Cabernet wines.
Dashes of Malbec and Merlot add middle palate, and barrel maturation in French hogsheads and barriques has added a further dimension.
The fruit and oak are marrying nicely and will continue to improve the wine for 5 – 8 years.
