Brooding red fruit | Engaging tannins
Rebus Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine crafted to stay true to its heritage as an icon of the Margaret River region. Our first release was in 2012. Since then, Rebus has made friends with people and proteins across Australia.
An intricate tapestry of glazed cherries, violets and graphite, deftly woven into a palate laden with flavours of red currants, cacao nib and plum skin. Bristling tannin on the entry and a tensile core of liquorish, black berries and slate, culminates in a persistent and ever-changing mineral finish.

A long, cold and wet winter put the vines in good stead for the season to come. Moderate temperatures and constant summer breezes, along with manicured canopies led to pristine fruit. This gentle and consistent ripening in idyllic conditions has led to wines of unsurpassable fruit purity and textural drive.
The parcels of fruit were fermented and matured separately, and after 12 months were blended before bottling based on a precise tasting profile.
40% new French oak barriques for 12 months. Mainly from the Allier and Center of France.
Up to 10 years, but delicious now.
