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.
96 Parker pts, Wine Advocate Erin Larkin “The 2020 (Morus) marks the first time that Morus is sealed under Stelvin, and it does have an impact on the wine in the glass. The vision is sharper, the flavors more distinct, the oak more clear to perceive. It tightens up all the edges, and I believe it is better for it."
96 pts Cassandra Charlick, WinePilot “This wine straddles elegance, skill, style and complexity with pure joy de Vivre.”
95 pts James Suckling “Aromas of black and red currants, fresh coffee, bark and pine needle. Medium-bodied with bright acidity. Fresh and red fruit with some savory undertones. Leafy herbs and pipe tobacco. Complex. Drink now.”

97 pts James Halliday “This swings into action from the first whiff, with a cavalcade of dark berry fruits of all persuasions, the precisely delineated palate that follows with cassis, redcurrant a sombre edge of earth and dried olive, joining mouth-watering tannins.”
96 pts James Suckling & Top 100 “The immediate intensity and purity here is striking."

96 pts Erin Larking, Halliday Companion "This wine has all the makings of a great party – everything crammed into the bottle with the endurance to go long.”
96 pts James Suckling “Wow. This has a regal feel from the outset with cedary oak and fresh aromas of spiced blue plums, blackberries and blueberries. Hints of tobacco and slate here, too."

“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.”

“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 2044
18.5/20 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 Mattinson 95 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
