MORUS CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Our finest cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon from the heart of Margaret River. This cuvee is named to reflect this unique mulberry character; Morus australis being the genus and species name for the mulberry tree.
97 James Halliday “It is exceptionally long and intense and its balance is flawless.”97 Huon Hooke, 96 & Gold International Wine Challenge London, 94 James Suckling “A majestic and cedary cabernet with a layer of violets and blueberries, as well as fresh herbs. The palate has a sleek, long and chiseled feel with gently creamy tannins and dark, spicy licorice to close. Long and fresh finish. Drink or hold.” 5 Walsh “Art for art’s sake. Chardy for God’s sake. Pear, white nectarine, a minor amount of struck match, almond meal, fine ginger and clove spice oak. It’s fresh and bright, some grapefruit zing, but mainly pears studded with spice, tasteful application of savoury toasty oak, slight sizzled butter and nuts, fine powdery texture, cool, long .."
Trophy & Best Margaret River Cabernet International Wine Challenge96 James Halliday “Redcurrant, blackberry, violets and bay leaf bouquet; characters of cedar and chocolate on the palate are oak derived but sit seamlessly within the wine as well. The fruit and tannin filling the mouth expansively” Steve Creber.
98 James Halliday “Cassis and mulberry go hand in hand ….. aided and abetted by the tannins softened in the maceration period” to 204418.5/20 Matthew Jukes, 92 Wine Spectator
98 Gold James Halliday “A wall of flavour abuts a wall of tannin. This is a three course dinner in liquid form, its density and architectural style both cut from the finest cloths and sprinkled with perfume. Naming blackcurrant, gravel, cloves and dark chocolate doesn’t do any kind of justice. We’re much better off simply calling it a brilliant wine.” Campbell Mattinson95 Top 100 Wine Business Magazine, 95 Gary Walsh Winefront, 93 Huon Hooke “…..The wine is very intense in the mouth and bright, driving and long with firm acid and tannin structure……. loads of potential”
97 James Halliday “A full bodied wine of remarkable intensity, filling every crevice of the mouth with a pure stream of cassis and mulberry fruit, oak and tannins dutifully lending support, but remaining in their place, simply reinforcing the inherent elegance of the wine.”96 Huon Hooke, 95 Decanter James Lawther
